    so whats your guys opinions, will the iphone 5 debut in june like normal, or will it be held off until the fall? reason i ask is because for some stupid reason i am incredibly tempted to buy the white iphone 4, even though its just a color lol.

    Because WWDC in June this year is a iOS event. Apple releases the new OS when they release the new iPhone. Betas would have been given to developers in April if they were having a June release. You probably see iOS 5 go beta at WWDC. Also, Apple would have held off the white iPhone if they were releasing a new version in June. Can you imagine all the ticked off people who just bought a white and then bam a new one comes out two months later? The math all adds up. This is all the information that I can tell you at this time

    ^^^ This makes sense. Also, I believe Apple wanted to put some time between releasing the i4 on VZW and releasing the i5.

    i would say they would wait for iphone 5 to come out, and then cut them a little after the 5 is out. thats what would make sense to me anyways

    A little off topic but is wwdc streamed online free and legally anywhere? I know I've read updates as they occur in the past but I'd like to be able to watch it if I can.

    I agree with you as well. I think them releasing the white helps buy them a little time
