When Apple announced the iPhone at Macworld Expo, they stated it would ship in “June 2007”. In their statement last week about the Leopard delay, they reiterated that the iPhone “is on schedule to ship in late June as planned”. If the iPhone ships before the end of June, it ships on time.
Yes, WWDC starts on June 11. Yes, it’d be swell if we could stampede out of the keynote to go buy them. But the only person who’s ever reported that the iPhone was going to ship on June 11 is Deke McCullagh, whose source was an unnamed “customer service manager” at Cingular’s 800 number.
