Welcome to iPhone 3.0?
There is a lot of talk right now that Apple will into a iPhone 3.0 update on the 17th (next Tuesday). The talk right now is it will be a developer release so the developing community can get their hands on things and start working on the changes (who knows what they will be) before it hits stores.
So, I’m going out on a limb here and trying to think out a timeline… Apple released iPhone 2 about 12-18 months after the first release. With the huge number of developers Apple is working with right now they have to give these people time to adjust their code for a new system (3 months, 6 months). I’m thinking it will be in time for the fall/holiday 2009. There, I said it!
It makes sense. Continue to work with the hardware, release a 10.6 update in the next month or two and then towards the end of the summer, fire up the rumor mill for a fall/holiday launch of iPhone 3!
Who’s with me???
