I just watched the keynote and especially the part with 6 p.m. and to me it is a joke. I believe there is no seriousness in it at all. Who says the exact time anyway. It will be out 29th in the morning!

Steve jobs said, "it comes out at 6:00 in the evening, I THINK"
So not certain, hopefully it will be eastern that way it will be 3:00 my time :p.
But Apple is pacific, so a 9:00 p.m. realse east coast? I don't think so.

I just watched it. A few guys in the crowd thought it was a joke but jobs seemed to be serious to me.

Also another guy called an Apple store (in another thread) and one of the workers at the store confirmed the 6pm release.

Its pretty obvious Apple is pulling out all the stops to get this out in june like they originally said they would. If that means shipping in the early morning, receiving at the stores in the afternoon and selling it in the evening all on the last businesss day of june, that's what they are gonna do.

Setting a time is just bogus and I think it was just another of Steve Job's feelers he throws out there. What was the last product ever that had a time set other than when they opened?

Could not agree more col. That thing will be in my hands on my couch at 6 p.m. I guess that is what Steve Jobs said about "shipping".

I just watched the keynote and he specifically said that it would ship on the 29th and go on sale at 6PM. Very strange.

I don't know. I called my local Cingular store, and they said that they would start selling it at 6 P.M. So I am guessing this was not a joke. And Steve said it would be in stores at 6 P.M., I think, not that they would be shipped at 6 P.M. I guess I will go with this for now and line up at noon.

I am very confused. I will go in to my local Apple store again this weekend to ask and check it out.
yeah good idea, once more people ask and call we can compare what they said.

i don't think AT&T stores would know yet...its not like they were tuned in listening to the audio feed while they were working (most of them don't even know when the iPhone is coming out)

So i called around as well. I called the local Apple store and the local corporate AT&T store and got the same answer from both--"we don't know."

It's still early. I guarantee you that we know more than most employees. Man, if only i were interested in my job as much as i'm interested in their jobs.

They did the same thing with the launch of Tiger so this is no hoax.

I heard from a mac genius that they already have several units of the iPhone in stock and some of the mac geniuses have had a chance to play with them...I hope this is true and doubt they will wait till 6pm to sell them...
