    So has anyone heard anything about an offical release date? I have heard some things about the 27th, which would make the original deadline of "late June". So what do you think? Do you have any date ideas? I can't wait, I hope it comes out this Friday!

    By the progression of 2.0, it should hit 'Gold Master' this Friday.

    It will not be released this Friday. (I have it on good authority - and i'll leave it at that).

    It will become final, and be ready for the July 11th launch.

    Hitting GM this Friday gives Apple roughly 2 weeks to load
    the software onto the phones before they go on sale.

    Another possibility is that software 2.0 is released on/during July 11th,
    and loaded onto the devices as they are activated on the new in-store only policy.

    They wouldn't have time to load millions of phones with OS 2.0 even if they started two weeks ago. But think of this, when OS 2.0 goes gold, then all developers working on launch-title apps will have to build their apps for the final OS, fix any last-minute problems caused by the differences between the final build and the recent beta build, and then submit, and Apple has to check them all to make sure they are kosher. Only then can the App Store go active, which needs to be working when OS 2.0 is launched. So I'd say it won't be coming out for at least a week after it goes gold, which matches up nicely with "early July" throught "July 11"
