    iPhone Announcement on Monday?

    [​IMG]

    Gizmodo claims that the iPhone will be announced on Monday.

    No further information is provided, but there is a clear implication that the iPhone is coming this Monday (December 18th).

    Brian Lam is a an editor for Gizmodo and former assistant editor for Wired magazine. While such a short unqualified blurb would not usually get much credence, Gizmodo is a relatively well established gadget blog.

    Despite this apparent confidence in this report, Gizmodo has no prior record of accurate rumors. Indeed, also working against Gizmodo is a previous teaser post also made by Brian Lam that implied that they had a scoop on an upcoming Apple product. This prompted speculation and subsequent disappointment with the announcement was about Tivo 3.0 and not an Apple product.

    We'll see...

    obviously, if this was posted on "Joe's Blog", it wouldn't get any credence at all.

    Gizmodo has some "rep" to lose if they are wrong.

    The Monday before Christmas sure would generate a lot of extra revenue! Maybe they need to off set the downward spiral of iTunes? Just kidding about iTunes.:D

    As far as I'm concerned, it'll happen when it happens, I'm in no rush. I'm becoming bored of the same rumours every year. I'll just wait till MacWorld.

    Folks are getting bamboozled here!!

    All he says is "Released on Monday"..That could be any Monday.Jan 15th is Monday also.

    But it does coincide with the discovery of the answering machine in Leopard.

    Fool me once.Shame on you.
    Fool me twice and you won't get fooled again!!

    I just sat on a pencil and it protruded right through my ******. If only I had iChat video on my phone, then I could show all my friends the severity of this altercation.

    That's quite a statement to make considering all the hype surrounding this product. I would say that he must be feeling very confident in order to maintain ANY credibility. Especially with all the whoring for the Webbies he has been doing lately. I'd say he must be onto something with this statement.

    Apple typically announces products on Tuesdays or Wednesdays, not Mondays.

    I am no genius, and I would love to see the phone on Monday, but this looks like an attempt to effect aapl dec options to me. Someone must have Dec 90's.

    Well that's a pretty bold statement. If the iPhone isn't announced this upcoming Monday, someone's making the naughty list. ;)

    In all seriousness, though, I would love to see this happen. However, I can't see Apple releasing such a big product so close to Christmas.

    Ok, no chance this is real. This is another of Jobs' pet projects, and he's gonna let it loose with no fanfare? He wouldn't pass up the chance to say "It's stunning" or "It's the best product we've ever designed" or "Boom". If there was an event, invitations would have been sent this week. Fake...

    If this is true it makes good sense. Apple has stated they will release procucts "as available" rather than when a scheduled news event is expected. They have been sticking to that.

    Further, pre-Christmas makes much more sense than post-Christmas, especially since this is an introductory product WITH, what many might agree, is a pent-up demand, at ANY price.

    High prices good. Low prices bad. For Steevie and stockholders :)

    It's listed as their "Top Story." It's risky: awful big credibility hit if their wrong...
