    I mean it makes sense for the iphone to be released here right? It about all the advancements in technology and such and what better advancement than the iphone! It also makes sense because it starts on tues may 29th which would work with apples traditional tuesday release.

    You are suggesting an iPhone release on this coming Tuesday?

    I don't think so.

    Not gonna happen. We're going to get another minor news item before WWDC (MBP speed bump, maybe), then WWDC is going to be all about Leopard (and perhaps a hardware release - new iMac, maybe). Then we get 2 weeks of Leopard chatter, and then iPhone comes out around June 29.

    No way.

    Think about the PR level vs WWDC. With WWDC, you have thousands of the most hard-core advocates/developers in attendance. Every Wall St analyst who covers the stock will be tuned in for the play-by-play description. Hundreds of thousands more crawling the news/rumor sites. The mainstream media ready to report on breaking developments. D: is a tiny blip on the radar screen in comparison - wire service reporting rather than dedicated reporters from every major news source (conventional or otherwise).

    Not that D: won't be interesting. The Q&A format and AAPL-friendly Walt Mossberg being one of the questioners will be a gas. But I wouldn't expect either Jobs or Gates to be trying to one-up each other with product announcements and such. They both have a lot of class and neither wants to make this look like the ultimate "Hello, I'm a Mac. And I'm a PC" commercial (oooh, some YouTube junkie is going to have a blast when the video of this interview becomes available).

    Still, we might get lucky, as Walt will no doubt ask questions about the evolution/convergence of notebooks/PDA
    s/cell phones etc. and how each company is viewing it. Might actually wrangle a few interesting tidbits out of Jobs in that context. Or perhaps a question about the xBox vs Apple TV approach and where those might lead.
