    Is the 3G iPhone should start selling in 9th June or 19th? I saw some articles about 9th, which is the day the WWDC starts, but what happens in 19th? Thanks:P

    Supposed announcement date is June 9th (Jobs keynote).

    Supposed in-store / online availability date is June 19th.

    Much shorter than the six month delay from the announcement of the first iPhone to the public release.

    Yup, June 19 has been floating around as the date of availability. But there have also been rumors that large cargo containers of "electronic computers" have been shipped to the US for Apple. So it will also be a possibility that it will be available on Monday.

    The actual truth is that we don't know for sure. We all hope it goes on sale right after the announcement, or within a week; truth be told though, it could not go on sale until the very end of June, if not early July. All we can do at this point is cross our fingers that both the release date, and the new features are what we hope for.

    So I wonder where those containers are right now and how much security they had once they landed on shore. Wouldn't that have been the heist of the century.

    I heard that the infamous "Job's Secret Police" have been attached to the containers like porn to the internet...

    I think one thing that is very important is that THIS IS ALL RUMORS! I have been one of the many that has been extremely over excited about this phone and it would blow serious chunks if Steve got mad that too many people knew about the phone before it was released and pushed it off just because he wanted more attention. lol

    Wishful thinking would be that the 3G iPhone would ship on June 9th or even June 19th but the fact of the matter is that nobody knows. It could be September or later before it becomes available but saying that I believe it will be available by the end of June or July. Fingers crossed.

    When the original iPhone was announced, how long was the wait? I know that ship date was June 29th, but I can't remember when Jobs announced it.

    It was a six month wait. Jobs announced it in his keynote at Macworld 2007 which was January 9th, 2007. As you know it was released June 29th of that year.

    Boy, was that a wait or what. Signs are pointing towards a significantly less wait time.

    Oh, yes, you can bet on it. With the current iPhone not being available for purchase anywhere, you can bet that I will come out very soon after an announcement. The Apple Store and AT&T have been out of stock for a few days now. There is no way they would wait much longer after the announcement.

    Excellent, thanks for the refresher. Yup 6 months was an insane amount of time to drool over it. And this time around will be less. Like nsquared said, they are out of stock of the old model, they will never wait 6 more months and lose all of the potential sales.
