    New iPhone in June? Somebody seems to think so - Engadget

    What do you think!?

    Apple has a habit of refreshing its iPod and iPhone-type products on a pretty regular schedule, so a new iPhone in June really wouldn't be the surprise of the century, but now we've got word to that effect from the United Arab Emirates. Etisalat is picking up the iPhone 3G over there, along with providing support for existing iPhones sold on the gray market, but the writeup in Business 24/7 makes mention of a brand new iPhone hitting in June, which Etisalat will also get at launch. This could easily be a misunderstanding on the part of the reporter, a misquote, or a combination of signs, portents and omens, but it's certainly an interesting little tidbit. We'd have to think that anyone liable to get this story right would also be aware that a brand new iPhone would be worth more than a passing reference, but we suppose we'll just have to wait and see. Apple Insider also mentions rumblings of an upcoming iPhone having a fairly significant architecture overhaul -- that's mostly conjecture at this point, but might make sense (or room) for an iPhone nano. And you know how we love the iPhone nano.

    This is pretty much the common knowledge. All of us here that those rumors are true.

    Apple is known to stick to it's product cycles pretty religiously. iPhone product cycle is June/July timeframe. Here's a link to a story Rene posted about it:

    So can we expect some type of official announcement some time before June? I was surprised that it wasn't mentioned at Mac World.

    Probably at the WWDC like last year. Announced and then released about a month later. I don't think there is a date for WWDC yet.
