Too bad. Piper Jaffrary's analysts are usually pretty reliable... but anything is possible, especially this early in the game. The June 29th rumor is looking more and more credible.

I would be very surprised if Apple & Jobs snub the iPhone at WWDC. If this is true, that may mean Apple is not planning on having 3rd party developer support for the iPhone after all, either.

Yeah, this is the show where they are gonna bust out all the stops for Leopard. The iPhone would steal away some of the press from that.

Agreed, but as Spin This! pointed out, if the iPhone was going to be opened to 3rd party apps it only makes sense that they would inform the developers attending the conference. If this is true, it is a bad sign for 3rd party apps in the near future.

@Spin This! thanks for the link. I guess I need to check EI's main page more often instead of jumping right to the forums ;).

Well maybe he will shed some light on some of the features we have been guessing about.

It's still all speculation, even if the analyst's track record is good.

Jobs usually spends like 10-15 talking about other stuff Apple is doing first. Maybe he will talk about third party support and other iPhone stuff. The keynote is scheduled for a hour and a half.

I agree. Gave me a chance to use the new "Rumors" category I setup after the Engadget flap.

I'm still on the June 29th bandwagon.

when do they stop working and tweaking the phone and actually start pressing and boxing the phones to make the release day? I wonder how long all that actually takes...

Yeah, they better have started making them by now if they want to feed millions to greedy consumers :laugh2:.

I would bet they started making them a month ago or so, but I do not know much about manufacturing. Anyone want to shed some light on this?

I would be shocked if Jobs did not mention the iPhone and its availability date at the WWDC keynote. This is the Next Big Thing™.

Hopefully he pulls an OPRAH and tells all the guests to look under their seats and there will be iPhones for everyone. :)

I still think June 11th will be the day we hear something about a definitive release date.

Without getting FCC approval first, starting manufacturing would be disastrous if they had to make a change.

I'm guessing the assembly lines are warming up right about now.
