Possible WWDC 2010 Event Posted, New iPhone?

Share:

Every year Apple holds their WWDC event in the summer months. The event has a large focus on Apple product developers however there have been some major product releases as well.

In the last two years, Apple has released the iPhone 3G and iPhone 3GS at WWDC and the annual summer event is now Apple’s only remaining trade show. WWDC 2010 could bring new things for Apple including a new iPhone, updated iPhone firmware, or the much talked about Apple Tablet.

Checking out the Moscone West (where WWDC is typically held) event schedule, the calendar has June 28th – July 2nd 2010 scheduled for a “Corporate Event”. In both 2008 and 2009, the “Corporate Event” placeholder has revealed to be Apple’s WWDC event.

So what do you think? Will we see the iPhone 4G? Firmware 4.0? iTablet?

    Looks like the 4G is coming this summer to me.

    *sigh*… I could get an iphone for X-mas and I want one now soooo bad, but with all the rumours about an iphone 4G and new carriers coming along I am loathe to lock in to a 3 year deal with a soon to be obsolete phone and a pricey plan. The question is… would it be worth the wait (and can I even hold out that long)? Wonder what changes the 4G might bring… and if many of those could be available to 3GS users in an update…

    Any word on whether Rogers/Fido have worked out their issues? If not, Bell/Telus might be the only way to go right now.

  • It's all clear with Rogers/fido now regarding network issues

    You should wait! Don't buy when the life cycle is half over. I think Wind will get the next iPhone and that is definitely the way to go! 4G is a misnomer though. That technology will not be ready this year. Realistically I think it's 2 or 3 years off.

    Damn it, anything but an i-phone 4G ! I just got my 3GS.

    Also Wind said they would not support the iPhone, if I remember correctly.

  • Jezebel

    I think Wind can't suport the iphone 3G but the next iphone is a possibility.

    I've already been waiting a year and my crappy little flip phone is now totally dead. I'm not sure I can wait until next summer… I could be playing around with my new little baby over the holidays.

    Aaaaah, what to do! 🙂

  • Dusty

    Of course well see a iPhone 4G, its just u never know with Apple when a release is coming 😉
    iTablet, that be cool. As long as it runs Mac OS X hehe 🙂

  • Dusty

    If your unsure about waiting, id recommend u checking this link out.
    http://buyersguide.macrumors.com/
    Scroll down to iPhone.
    It explains about the recent changes and rumours of Apple products and what might be to come. Also u will notice about its product cycles.

    Happy holidays!

  • Dusty

    Same here. I dont expect 4G for a while yet, but u never know the way technology is going. There have been rumours (I think already released) of phones that are capable of 4G though which is nice once you can take advantage of the speeds lol

  • Jay

    I am waiting until the new iPhone comes out to buy it. Sounds like it would be better than buying on for myself for Christmas when I can get a even better one in a few months.

  • montymon

    I'd really like to see Apple release firmware that allows a carrier change without jailbreak/unlock. Once I've met my contractual obligation to Rogers I should be able to take my iPhone onto any available carrier.

    I'd be interested to see whether they can legally get away with not providing the ability to change carriers after the phone is paid for.

  • That would be great but it seems highly unlikely….unfortunately

    Jezebel,
    This problem has vexed technology users… since the first gadget was invented, and its only getting worse. Don't beat yourself up. Just get one. There will ALWAYS be something better on the horizon. That being said… go crazy with this – http://guides.macrumors.com/Buyer%27s_Guide_%28

    If Wind Mobile does get the next iPhone, it won't happen unless it's the 4G because current iPhones don't support the 1700 MHz bandwidth that Wind Mobile operates exclusively on. That means anyone thinking of joining Wind should wait until the summertime because Wind will not work with any iPhones at the moment.

  • meagan

    The 4G has to be better than the 3Gs…..right? Also, this is totally unrelated to iPhone but….does anyone know if Apple is upgrading the MacPro anytime soon? I'm seriously looking to buy one right now but I'm afraid once I do, they'll just come up with a better one…

  • Dusty

    Well you'd hope to expect the 4G to have some better hardware and specs then the 3GS lol
    O boy lol I was in the same situation with this question and said screw it and bought a new MBP couple weeks ago. I LOVE it! 🙂 Right now was a good time too as there was some wicked deals for the holidays! Over $100's in savings.
    You can keep holding off from buying one now, but then you can end up not purchasing the next release because the MBP will be refreshed again and better!
    What model did u have in mind?
    I don't see big changes to the 13'' MBP models as they were introduced not to long ago. Maybe a few upgrades to hardware specs… Im thinking bigger changes to the 15'' and 17'' models as Arrandale is being introduced and available in January. (I may be wrong as theres so much talk going on right now with Apple and Intel) There is other talk about different hardware and upgrades too. I say head on over to MacRumors for some great information!
    Good luck on ur decision.

    Hmmm… I think the macrumors site may not be entirely accurate, but I could be missing something. They recommend not purchasing an iphone right now on the basis that updates are coming soon, but their average # of days between updates is listed at 178, and isn't it generally expected that it is closer to a year between iphone hardware updates? I would have thought their recommendation would instead be “neutral – mid product cycle”, just like it is for the ipod touch. Or am I missing something?

    At any rate, I've decided I can't face X-mas morning without a shiny new 32GB 3GS to play with. I need a new phone since my very old LG flip won't hold a charge for 5 minutes, so it might as well be an iphone. 🙂 I suppose I could always try to sell it if an amazing new iphone is released this summer, although I don't know much about that (how much one could expect to get for it and how hot the market is).

    Keep in mind. Apple can surprise there customers anytime with new releases and upgrades you'd not expect.
