The later, the better.
Apple has a really difficult set of choices. 5av, 5a, 5v, 5a and v. Is there going to be a converged 5 or one for GSM and one for CDMA. It seems unlikely that the carriers will converge on LTE within the 4G time-frame.
The earlier the 5, the less chance that it will support 4G and the less justification for anyone to buy it.
It seems unlikely that AT&T, or even Verizon, will have any significant 4G coverage in 2011. Again, the later, the more likely anything is to work. Apple leads on design but is usually conservative on technology outside their control.
Hopefully Apple will pull a rabbit out of a hat, a solution to this that is creative and surprising. However, it is not an easy problem.Thanks for ending the exclusivity, Steve. it is about time.

I'm really hoping for June, so it'd reach Australia by July, so then I can pick up a factory unlocked one during my vacation!Nokia Lumia 900, iPad 1 16GB WiFi

I honestly dont see myself getting rid of my 4 anytime soon what else could you want your phone to do that the 4 doesnt already do? Maybe a bit better battery life would be a nice touch but as far as processing power or camera or anything else the 4 just works perfect for everything I need out of a smartphone. Im happy with what I got in my 4!

I'm going with late June until confirmed, anything else is just a RUMOR.
The only reason I could see it delayed a few months is because of the very real probability that Apple needs to find other places to build some of the components due to the very real fact that large parts of Japan are being irradiated daily by the ongoing nuclear catastrophe that the media got bored of.
Apple likely wouldn't put out a 4G capable phone until 2012, and it would only work for Verizon in the US since AT$T can't even get 3G to work in most places, anyone that thinks AT$T will have 4G before like 2018 or so is fooling themselves.

I think the rumors about a later release were pushed out by apple in an attempt to get more sales when they release it in june/july like normal.
Would be a brilliant marketing strategy though
