    And gave us a definite release for the next iPhone - Fall of this year.

    True. If you are bummed, then you weren't paying attention.

    They also do have the occasional total surprise. As someone who is currently using a 3G, I was holding out hope for at least a price cut on the now nearly year old iPhone 4.

    I am. I was hoping we would at least get a glimpse. Isn't the iPhone usually released in July? Shouldn't we be hearing something soon?

    No because iOS 5 won't be released until fall. That is when a new iPhone is supposedly coming out. In other words, I'm not going to be running iOS 5 on my 3GS.

    even though I kinda knew it wouldn't be announced, I was hoping that Apple would surprise us. Oh well

    No, they did not. And FYI "fall" is mid September to mid December, so even if they had announced the phone for fall, its far from a definite release date.
    Yeah, its pretty dumb.

    Really? I was paying attention. Just hopeful. There was a lot of speculation from pretty good sources that there might be an iPhone announcement. I believe even WSJ analyst thought we might hear something today. This is MacRumors so it's ok to speculate, right? I do know this, I have bought each new iPhone in succession, the last two being in June. So to think it was clear cut they wouldn't announce a phone just means you don't know how Apple has operated up until now. It will be the first time since the original release that it will be more than a calendar year between hardware offerings.
