The AppStore Opens Monday, June 9th
According to a recent report on cnet Apple will be launching the AppStore on Monday providing iPhone and iPod Touch users everywhere with the ability to buy 3rd party apps.
A source at a software company that has been working on a native iPhone application tells us the company is getting ready to launch that application on Monday, which could also imply that Apple's App Store will be up and running that day.

no so much
this is all rumours and hoo ha
the only thing for real is proly the 2.0 release and i wont be surpirsed if we have to pay for it
and their is not enough official hype around the 3g iphone its all gander and rumours so my bets is that the 3g iphone wont b released neither with snow leopard
the best we can hope for is that the 3g iphone and snow leopard are mentioned are release dates are confirmed on monday, think about it there aint no real hype

I hope this is true, because I lost my job just now for this; they added me to the schedule for Monday, and I said 'You are going to have to fire me if you expect me to work Monday, June 9th' and so they did...
Hopefully the cable company doesn't shut off my connection before Monday...And it will be like a taco inside a taco within a Taco Bell that's inside a KFC that's within a mall that's inside your dream!

i went to the at&t store today and i was talking to a sales person and i told him i thought they'd release it at the end of the month like the first one. and he just shook his head and said it'd be alot earlier then that..
i hope everyones right, bc my iphones screen wont react to touch anymore. i've replaced the screen once but it was sh!t.
(word of advice: dont buy replacement screens from third party websites. dead pixels out the butthole. and it slowly lost it's touch ability starting from the top and it slowly made it's way down screen.)

Hopefully they'll handle this like that last major firmware, free for iPhone users and a low price for iPod Touch users. Can't wait until Monday!

didnt they already state when they launched the SDK that it would be a free upgrade to all iPhone users and a possible small fee for iPod users similiar to last time. Someone should check that out because im almost 100%positivie if they really want to know.
PS - Will 2.0 be pwnable out the gate or does it look like we will be waiting a couple/few weeks?

We will have to wait a day max probably just a few hours it depends how long it will take to dl 2.0

I don't think the AppStore itself will have a fee for Touch users since the main idea behind the app to buy apps. The reason previous apps cost money for Touch users is because AT&T gives Apple money for every iPhone contract, so iPhone users already "pay" for the apps. Since Touch users only pay the unit fee and nothing more, the legal team or someone else requires a price behind the apps for them.

Jobs DID say it would possibly incur a small fee on iPod Touch user. I really don't understand the "hey, please pay us money to be able to pay us money" approach, but what do you know.
And considering the way EVERY announcement from Apple over the last couple of years; of course the app store will launch Monday, of course the 3G iPhone will launch Monday, and quite possibly Snow Leopard will also launch Monday - less certain about that last one.

I have cleaned this thread.
I was going to explain to ya'll the humor behind a dig @ digg users. I was also going to explain why resorting profanity and name calling to make a point shows the level of your maturity and intelligence to be nothing short of lacking.
Suddenly I don't feel the need this is all you get. Read this.

Well anyone that's counting on rogers releasing the iPhone this month is mistaken. I've gotten word from someone within rogers that it will not be released till later this year. From what I was told it will be here just before Christmas.
Once I get details on the features and can confirm 3g model and if gps is included I will post back.
LOL sorry Canada!

You guys are all supposed to be iPhone, iTouch nerds right? (Look how I sneakily used the third person to avoid labelling yours truly ) Well I'm 98% sure the reason iTouch users will pay for appstore is because 2.0 will enable them to have the stocks, maps, weather apps etc, which I'm fairly sure you guys have been starved of so far. OK, no I'm wrong, that update is already out (I just checked befopre I made myself look like the idiot I am - phew!) So I guess once more Steve Jobs is holding out his hand to all the iTouch users, and asking them to swivel upon his finger.
