  • Canadians Dish on the New iPhone's June Debut

    Earlier on ModMyi, I reported that Apple may be planning to reveal the new iPhone in June. On the heels of new reports today, we can probably shift from using the word "may" to "will" when discussing Apple's plan for the next gen iPhone's big reveal this June. Of all the potential sources for confirmation, it seems that a Canadian wireless provider (SaskTel) is opening up about the 4th generation iPhone, which according to SaskTel CEO Robert Watson, will be available as early as July 1st after a late June introduction.

    "The good news is that (Apple) is coming out with a new version of the iPhone in the June time-frame and they're going to put us on that. So we're quite excited about that'' Watson tells the "Leader-Post." While the Yerba Buena Center's public calendar hasn't yet reflected a booking for June 22nd, sources inside Apple claim that the team has the date on "standby" and that if June 22nd isn't utilized as presently planned, the new iPhone will be rolled out a few days later on June 28th when WWDC 2010 kicks off.

    Nonetheless, it now appears that late June will, indeed, perpetuate the summer tradition of a new iPhone launch. Last year, June 8th was the date of the grand reveal, while the official on-sale date for the iPhone 3GS was June 19. 2010, however, could be a whole new ball of wax for Apple, which is still rumored to be working on two new iPhones - the 4th gen to be unveiled in June, and a CDMA capable iPhone (that may be available on the Verizon network) that wouldn't be released until September.

    With the new iPhone OS already announced and on the minds of iPhone, iPod, and iPad owners and developers everywhere, Apple has very little to gain from putting off the unveiling of a new iPhone. And for this reason, it's a safe bet that we won't have to wait beyond the suspected June time frame to get our first look at the new iPhone... at least one of them

      All they've said is what EVERYONE knows. A new iPhone is coming this summer sometime in June/July, just like it happened last summer, and the summer before that, AND THE ONE BEFORE THAT ONE TOO.

      i dont get why every one is freaking out about the next iphone. for the past 3 years, it has come out exactly the same time (give of take a few days as I don't know the exact days) so why the hell would it be different. if it's one thing apples not different is announcing and releasing a new iphone same time every year. come on people, there is nothing to comment about until the keynote or whatever. don't add fuel to an unnecessary fire.

      Two iPhones sounds unlikely. A Verizon version will cause confusion between costumers; considering the differences between the carriers.

      A regional carrier like alltell. But don't worry, sasktel hasn't heard of you either lol!

      Why would the president of a company open up regarding anything apple. Apple is the worst company regarding breaking confidentiality. Just look what happened when that one publisher opened up about the ipad? They apparently were left out of the launch event presentation...
