I'm betting the same day the 3G iPhone is going to be out, actually I'm pretty sure of that. WWDC is June 9 so probably sometime then or after.

Yep, I'd be betting on around the same time. It will be nice to finally get an update as its been quiet the last few months.

I'm wondering if anyone has heard a specific date?
In March Apple said 'late June' and I think that is still all anyone really knows. You can see the video of the March 6 'iPhone Software Roadmap' [URL="https://www.apple.com/quicktime/qtv/iphoneroadmap/#mn_p]here[/URL] for confirmation of that - if you haven't seen it before it'll likely do a good job of whetting your appetite too :)

I'm really excited about the upcoming App Store, less so about the Exchange support though because I don't use my phone for business purposes. I wonder how many Apps are going to be available at launch.

I just hope that alot of small developers will put small games and software and not just alot of companies that will sell their stuff.

I'm sure they will. $99 to put your stuff up on the AppStore is a really good deal. I just wish I knew how to program stuff. 70/30% revenue is pretty awesome too.

The delay in releasing FW2.0 was to allow developers time to, well, develop. I am sure there will be a good number of apps on the App Store's launch day, with many more to follow.

Also has anyone heard anything about what the process will be to get 3g?
shira, 3G requires new hardware. Process = buy the second generation iPhone and use it with a carrier with a 3G network. Or am I misunderstanding you?

With regard to the following quote:

You don't have to use your phone for business purposes to be excited about something as powerful as support for Exchange ActiveSync. Want e-mail to go to your device the moment it hits the server? This is what Exchange support is all about. You can sign up for free e-mail at a site such as www.mail2web.com, and suddenly you will have free push e-mail on your iPhone. Exchange support is powerful stuff, whether you use it for business or personal use.

Unless I can push support from Gmail to the iPhone, then it won't really benefit me right now. I'm not saying I'm not excited about it, I am. I'm just saying I won't use it anytime soon.

I think the stores will be packed just like the first one and then some... depending on the announcements made at WWDC. There are a lot of people that would have jumped on the iPhone boat a long time ago, but they are waiting for 3G and a few features. The features may not come, but 3G is probably enough to make many of them take the plunge.

I bet it won't be sold out again. Last year I walked into the Apple Store an hour after the launch and snagged an iPhone. They literally had hundreds behind the counter and in the back room. I'm not concerned about not being able to score one.

Depends where you live too.
Living here up in the sticks of New Hampshire (I'm surprised having an Apple store in our mall at all actually), I could bet we won't be sold out. Cities like New York or Boston most likely will be if it's released a week or two after the WWDC announcement.

Ah yes, I guess. The store I went to didn't seem like it was situated in a very populous place, but if they had hundreds left over after an hour, I'm willing to bet places like the 5th Avenue store won't run out day 1, lol maybe day 2 they will.
