iPhone ’09 at WWDC?
If Apple is planning to release a new iPhone this summer, it will likely unveil it June 8. That’s day one of Apple’s 2009 Worldwide Developers Conference and historically the day on which its keynote address is delivered. Given the iPhone 3G’s debut at WWDC last year and the recent unveiling of the forthcoming iPhone OS 3.0 update, it’s a safe, but not sure, bet that this year’s event will feature the next revision of the handset (iPhone ’09? With 4G networks not yet commercially available, “iPhone 4G” doesn’t quite work, does it?) as well as quite a bit of discussion about OS X Snow Leopard. No word yet on who’ll be handling keynote duties this year. With CEO Steve Jobs on medical leave until the end of June, it will likely be another member of Apple’s (AAPL) executive bench, though it would be great to see Jobs onstage and healthy once again.
