  • iPhone To Be Announced After WWDC, By Steve!?!


    All the hopes of Steve Jobs' early return from the "holiday" for the WWDC keynote were ruined when Apple officially announced the keynote to be delivered by Phil Schiller, Apple's Marketing Vice President. With this announcement many believe that the new iPhone will no longer be announced at WWDC ...

    According to Piper Jaffray's Gene Munster, Apple won't be unveiling any new iPhone hardware this WWDC. In fact, the whole event will be surrounding software ONLY. This has become a bit obvious after Apple's announcement of developer's preview of Snow Leopard. Apple won't be willing to launch the new iPhone and leave the Snow Leopard with less audience... Therefore, it might be possible that the WWDC keynote will be boring like the last Macworld keynote.

    Although this may raise some concern among investors that Steve Jobs will not return [at all], we continue to expect his return to the company by the end of June."
    It is believed that Steve will do the honors of revealing the new iPhone by himself and not at the WWDC but at another different event possibly taking place in late June or early July.

      Apple have not announced any new Hardware so if they do have any labs of Hardware (they all look like s/ware to me - and they have announced FW3.0) then the hardware labs will be on the existing Hardware. What made you think any different?

      This is precisely what I was thinking. Let's wait and see if this is how it actually plays out so we can say "see? told ya so." lol

      Has anyone thought of the idea that they unveil a new iphone and all of 3.0 but they dont release it till like July 7th? I mean thats how they did it last year kinda....Makes sense since wwdc is in 24 days and i haven't heard of shipments yet and they started unloading their old stock almost a month ago. Maybe im just being optimistic but maybe because of Jobs condition he wont unveil the new iphone and make a special conference when he is back and wow he drops this new apple tablet pc everyone's been hearing about, isnt he supposed to be working on that primarily....But then again apple always seems to pull some shady stuff but it would be wise of them to tell people about the new iphone 2 weeks before summer starts (officially) then it goes on sale 2 weeks after summer starts....seems smart on apple's part dont ya think....let everyone know then they save up money and have this huge release during a recession for a good price then the end of summer when everyone goes back to school they drop the tablet pc....like i said maybe im just dreaming.

      bottom line Apple does not really care about the people. They know they hooked you and they know you will just wait. I don't care who show off the iphone. The company is more then one person. i know he is old and all but its like apple is like we will wait for him, type of thing. i feel for him but, apple should look at whats best for them. The other American company that sell the phones that is are at the same lvl now and moving past them. 2year contracts are coming up and why go for another 2 years for a newer phone with all the same stuff really. Its like buying a car. first new style and then buying the same style but differnet made date.

      i still use the 2g 8mb i love it and i didnt upgrade do to the 2 year hook. plus i was holding out to see this new toy.

      I just think that they going to say that they not show it off. then Poof they show it. and it be better then ever. But who really knows. one time will tell so d-day june7

      The people that bought the original iPhone when it came out with a 2 year contract will be up for renewal at the end of June. i really don't think Apple will keep them waiting for a new iPhone.
      I could be wrong but....
      I think your are absolutely right. Furthermore this news says nothing about an iPhone at all, just that Steve plans to come back...
