It looks like they're shooting for the last possible day in June so as to maintain the "june release date". Not that there's anything wrong with that...if it takes a couple extra weeks to make sure there's enough supply to meet demand, then i'm all for it. I would hate to wait in a long line at the Apple store with only 5-10 iPhones in stock.The general consensus these days seems to be June 29.
Very true. As of now, there is absolutely no way to tell exactly when the iPhone will be released, with all these rumors being passed around. As we have said in other threads, though, it is likely they will announce the date on 10 a.m (PST?) on June 11th, 2007, when Steve Jobs opens WWDC, or the Worldwide Developers Conference, with an Apple keynote. Until then, I am assuming that the unconfirmed rumors will continue. Stay posted.Now that the FCC has approved the iPhone, we should start to see rumors/intel flowing in shortly on production ramping up. The delivery dates of those shipments might give some clues as to when to expect the phone.
Although Apple is holding to late June, that may be just to save face for shipping delays. My bets are on June 15 if that sales memo means anything. What's the point of a memo on vacation time if you're not going to get product for another couple weeks?
Cingular updates their site Sunday night eh? That doesn't rule out the possibility of a pre-order opportunity online on Monday (when Steve makes the Keynote) for late delivery in June either. If Jobs doesn't announce the release date or availabilty at the Keynote, I'd be very surprised (unless of course Apple announce prior to that).
