    yeah, all of a sudden my white 3Gs seems 'round' and 'pudgy!' When just a few days ago it seemed state of the art!



    Ps. I'm loving Apple's new 'touch' mouse! got to have the latest 'stuff!'

    Unlikely... They need FCC approval first. FCC files are public. They won't show them before they show us. Isnt this why we had to wait for the first 3 models and the iPad?

    The FCC will hold testing and approval secret until the company decides they want to make it public. I'm sure it has to go public by the time the item going on sale, but that isn't a problem here.



    You can check out all of Apple's products on FCCs website and see that the testing was completed well in advance of Apple's announcement and FCC's release of the info. You can also see letters from Apple detailing certain items will remain hidden for longer, even indefinitely.

    Likewise. My old 3G feels like a wheezing old fossil ready for recyling. It struggles even to run the iPod app for long without locking up or crashing, and when it comes to games... well I guess games are all written for the 3GS these days.

    My 3G has a broken off mute switch since 11/09, a home button that is flaky, too little memory, and today I notice several bad pixels in the middle of the screen.



    iNeed it soon!

    the phone will be running iphone os 4.0 which has already been made available.



    the only thing that might be missing is cases



    and I don't see them going on sale right away. at the least it would be the end of that week. or perhaps during the next week.

    Steve walks out, reaches into pocket for something. it's not there. checks the other pockets. scans floor to see if he dropped out.



    Powell walks out, hand outstretched "Lose something?" and hands him the phone

    nice but it would focus the attention to Gizmodo again. Besides, they shouldn't make fun of something that's being investigated by the police.

    Here's how Steve Jobs will introduce the new iPhone...



    Steve says, "...introducing the new iPhone 4G"



    Plays the video clip of Jason Chen talking about and dissecting the iPhone prototype...



    Steve says, "Any questions? Okay... Thank you all for coming."



    End of keynote

    Well, at least we know what it looks like. ;D

    What possible insight do you have into Apple's stock position or supply chain situation? They have had decades of experience in managing inventory before major launches. US gadget aware users are all waiting for the HD but most non-geeks are not and in many other countries, the HD won't be available until later. Clueless...

    What have you been doing to it? (my 3GS mute switch is loose but that was totally me putting the case on the wrong end - doh!!)

    My mum has my 1G iPhone and even the battery is still (barely) adequate.

    Isn't this the key thing - no way they will release the HD without 4.0 for even a few weeks?



    They could release 4.0 only on the HD for 2 weeks. I don't know, my head is spinning...

    I would assume that they'd allow the current 3G/GS stocks to simply dry up and discontinue that particular model before they release the new...?

    But, why? That will just mess up everything. The friday sale tradition, the weekend earnings, the global sales and releases! I think this article/story is just a plain hoax.

    Myself and my wife are in the same situation as you, so this would be a very welcome move for us on Apple's part. There's no point in us getting a 3GS now with the 4G (or whatever it's called) so close. And there must be a lot of pent up demand from others who are on 3G iphones with 18+ month contracts that have expired.

    I am not so sure the OS can be ready by June 7. May be by the end of June if things go well.



    I bet they announce on june 7th and ship by end of June.



    Time will tell.

    Gee. It may be introduced only 6 weeks before my ball and chain with AT&T gets removed. I sincerely hope folks buying the new phones enjoy them. I mean that. My 3G has been an interesting device that has offered a lot of pleasure. Too bad it is not available with service to match.

    I hope so. I work overseas, I will be home at the end of June through the middle of July. I hope the new iPhone comes out while I'm back in the U.S.A. I will need a cell phone when I'm back home, I dont want to buy a prepaid one. I would rather get the new iPhone. I recently bought 32GB iPod Touch, I love It..its just missing one thing..the phone part. At least I can call ppl using Skype over Wifi on it..thats awesome. Alright guyz..I hope this article is true for a June release date! If it's not true, I wont get the 3GS while I'm home..was looking at Google Phone. Then I will just get the new iPhone after I come back othe US for good. I bought a pair of Nike+ running shoes for the beach when I'm home (Daytona) Hope to try the Nike+ feature on my iPod Touch
