    Default June iPhone Confirmation in AT&T Vacation Block?


    Another bit of evidence emerged this week that the next iPhone will be released in June, as Boy Genius announced that he's "confirmed with multiple AT&T sources that the carrier has now put a block on employees taking vacations in June." The ban is significant, because the only other times they've occurred at the carrier's retail outlets has been for previous iPhone launches.

    Though it's been obscured by the iPad hype, anticipation for the fourth-generation iPhone has been building for some time. Observers expect a power boost - possibly from Apple's new A4 system-on-a-chip - and hopes remain high that a CDMA-capable model will be released that will be able to operate on Verizon's network in the US. A new model this summer is virtually a lock, as Apple has refreshed the iPhone around the same time every year since it was introduced on June 29, 2007, with the 3G arriving on July 11, 2008 and the 3GS on June 19, 2009. Our own Michael Essany broke the news (later picked up by numerous other sites) that Apple had reserved the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts for an event on June 22, 2010. The reservation of the hall where the iPad was announced, on a date which fits perfectly into the pattern, makes for pretty strong circumstantial evidence that this will be the day we see the fourth-generation iPhone (which increasing reports suggest will be named the iPhone HD).

    AT&T first told its employees that they couldn't take vacations from June 15 to July 15, 2008 when the iPhone 3G was released. Similarly, an employee "vacation block" was imposed last year around the time of the 3GS launch. Verizon store employees, however, are apparently free to enjoy sun and fun this summer, so we'll have to see if Steve Jobs announces "one more thing" on June 22.

    The whole of June seems a bit OTT as the new iPhone wont be announced until the 28th....

    It doesn't confirm anything but it is a good bet.

    My gut tells me...

    Yes - Processor speed increase
    Yes - Storage increase
    Yes - Camera mp increase
    Yes - Updated Google Maps, Camera, Safari and YouTube (to match web site redesign) default apps with possibly more voice command options

    No - Verizon CDMA iPhone
    No - RAM increase
    No - Front facing camera
    No - Larger design with screen
    No - iChat app

    A ram increase makes more sense than a faster processor. Especially with multitasking in 4.0. But it'd make no sense to not upgrade both to at least keep up with the competition.

    Not necessarily. AT&T does annual iPhone upgrades if you spend more than $100 per month. So I get annual upgrades since I have my wife on my plan as well. And its the full upgrade. I paid only $199 for my 3GS after paying only $199 for my 3G in '08.

    I cannot wait for the new iPhone! It's going to blow the competition away!

    Edit: I like the "prototype" they say they've found of the iPhone 4G..

    +1

    The new iPhones will more than likely have the A4 CPU. Not much faster than the current 3G[S]

    Storage, I'd be willing to be there will be 16gb, 32gb, 64gb. Why? Makes business sense, since they can buy shitloads of the same memory for the iPad and iPhone

    Camera is a given

    There might be a RAM increase, but looking at the iPad, its a maybe.
