iPhone HD/4G d-day: June 7

Sorry folks, we’ve made a major booboo on the date in our earlier post. It’s June 7, NOT July.

We thought that it’d be earlier but later is always better than never.

Looks like the new iPhone may make an appearance earlier than expected.

Apple fans out there make sure you mark your calendar, June 7 will now be the most likely date for the new iPhone to make its debut; because that is when Apple will be organising its WWDC10 event.

Part of the rumours that was unravelled in the Apple forums is true. The event will be held at Moscone West in San Francisco this year but the date is not 22 June, it will be earlier.

Unlike the WWDC before it, “this year’s WWDC offers developers in-depth sessions and hands-on working labs to learn more about iPhone OS 4, the world’s most advanced mobile operating system,” says Scott Forstall, Apple’s senior vice president of iPhone Software. As the focus shifts toward the iPhone OS 4.0, WWDC10 will provide “a unique opportunity for developers to work side-by-side with Apple engineers and interface designers to make their iPhone and iPad apps even better.

Many are speculating that the WWDC10 will be the event in which Apple will unveil its latest iPhone. Of which it now has two possible names, the iPhone HD or iPhone 4G. We’re almost certain that it’s not going to be called the iPhone 4G as that will be very confusing due to the very high likelyhood that the device will not support 4G mobile networks like WiMAX.

It’s going to be a bit of an anti-climax though, considering Gizmodo have already exposed much of the new iPhone’s details like a front-facing video camera, camera flash and micro-SIM card. We also know that the iPhone 4.0 OS that the new device is likely to run will be bringing with it many of the much awaited features iPhone users have been asking for. What’s left to be discovered is if indeed the iPhone HD/4G will use a 960×640 display.

Whatever it is, we’ll be wide awake during the WWDC10 keynote come June 7.
