WWDC (World Wide Developer’s Conference) is set for June, and the people who know people who know people are reporting that Steve Jobs will be launching the 3G iPhone during the conference.
According to the people who know people who know people, the new iPhone won’t just be faster, it will be thinner (by about 2.5 mm) and it will be encased in a more “high end” case. Yes, it will still be encased and therefore there will be no user replaceable battery still, but I am ok with that.
According to the article, and other industry sources (not my sources mind you), the price will remain at $399 (8 GB) and $499 (16 GB) depending on storage capacity, but there is a rumor bouncing around regarding a $599 (32 GB) version. I am not sure I need to spend $599 on an iPhone (again) just to get 32 Gigs out of it. I will be happy with 3G speeds.
