The fourth-generation iPhone cometh. While Apple hasn't explicitly announced the launch date of its new smart phone yet, all signs point to an unveiling on June 7, the first day of Apple's World Wide Developers Conference. Why else would Apple boldly announce that Steve Jobs himself will kick off the show with one of his famous keynotes?
According to the Apple announcement, Jobs will speak on Monday, June 7 at 10:00 AM. The event is taking place at the Moscone West center in San Francisco, so that's presumably 10:00 AM Pacific time.
In a not-so-subtle hint at the contents of the keynote, Walmart has cut the price of the 16GB iPhone 3GS from $199, the official suggested retail price, to a cool $97. That actually makes Apple's current best handset cheaper than the old, $99 iPhone 3G. Then again, paying Apple's online store a visit reveals that the iPhone 3G no longer has a "select" button under it. If those signs don't point to the imminent retail launch of at least one new iPhone, we don't know what does.
