iPhone Release Date CONFIRMED!!!

wwdc08According to the ars technica article I just read; they state that the 3G iPhone has been confirmed for a release date of June 9th at WWDC. This is supposed to happen right after the announcement. Here’s the clincher though. They go on to site the Gizmodo article that I sited in my post earlier this morning. So, at this point I would take this announcement with a grain of salt. I will update my blog as soon as I hear any other news on the release date.

Latest 3G iPhone Rumor

prod-iphoneAs WWDC approaches the iPhone rumor mill will run a muck. So far we have heard that the new iPhone will be 3G, it will have GPS, oh and it will also drive your car for you. I am kidding about the last statement, but I would not be surprised if that was a rumor as well. This morning I read a Gizmodo article stating a “source very close to the 3G iPhone launch”, said that the iPhone will be announced on June 9th at WWDC. And, that it will be available “worldwide” right after the launch. The prominent rumor is that it will be announced at WWDC, but as far a launch time it has been varying by rumor.

The other rumor which I hope is true, is the subsidization of the iPhone by the carrier. I had posted this on my blog about three weeks ago. According to the Fortune Blog AT&T would subsidize the iPhone by $200.00 when you sign a two year contract. The Gizmodo article also states that the iPhone will not be sold at a fixed price point. As to what exactly this means the article was fairly vague. I guess what they are probably taking about is carrier subsidization. Or, Apple might be releasing more than one iPhone model. This to is another rumor cycling through the rumor mill.

Well until June 9th, all we can do is hope that the rumors are true. If they are this is going to be a great iPhone. Even if some of the rumors are not true, I still think the iPhone will do very well.
