I know the 3g phone comes out 7/11, but do we have to wait for software 2.0 to come out in july too?

Yeah but they were unspecific. All that was said was early July.

while that makes sense, you wonder why they would give an exact date for the 3G release and say the 2.0 update would be early july. Would lead me to believe it would be sooner.

I'm not expecting it before the 11th though.

I'm thinking the 11th is going to be the day for everything. New iPhone, new firmware, new app store. Now we play the (even longer) waiting game.

Yes agree. Why would they released the update sooner? If its nothing to shout about it may put people off from buying he iPhone 3G

I believe it will be the 11th of July since the firmware needs to be updated to add the Appstore to the iPhone.

I agree with the above posters. All things will be July 11th. The software is tied to the new phone which is tied to the apps store and the Apple site says the 11th on the phone, BUT, since the 11th is a Friday I think we could see the software update +/- 2 days of the target date. I don't know why, I just think we might see a window around it rather then Apple getting slammed with everything all at once. Honestly, I can see new phone owners having the phone/OS/app store on the Friday and old owners and touch owners getting the OS update the Tuesday that follows. Trying to give more incentive to buy a new phone!

The app store and the new phone were both given dates of 7/11 at the WWCD today.
