    Alright, so it seems like everyone on the internet is quite sure that there will be a 3G iPhone at WWDC. But what if there isn't? I know its unlikely, but it could happen, right?

    So lets try a thought experiment. Everyone pretend you just saw the keynote without a mention of the iPhone. You are crushed. devastated. your world has just come tumbling to the ground. How could steve do this to you?

    Please respond to this thread as if it were the real deal.

    There is no 3G iPhone, just more info on the software update.

    WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO DO ABOUT IT? :eek:

    Applaud. All that that means is that Apple focused on the Mac.

    I'll go about my normal life as I really don't care. People will be mad even if 3G gets announced because there are much higher expectations piled on top of it.

    Especially since there are no processors to which they can upgrade.

    why so? i havent really heard much about the 3G at WWDC other than on the internet, anyone that reports on it expects it, but not from WWDC.

    i have thought about this too

    it would be just like last year when everyone had expectations of some announcement at WWDC regarding the iPhone, and all we got was web apps and everyone was pissed.

    but i guess its true, you can't please 100% of the people 100% of the time

    Are you living under a rock?
    I've seen stories about it on every major tech website, CNN, Fox News, tons of major newspapers worldwide, Mossberg has referenced it... it's everywhere. All the insiders expect it. Apple's done nothing to try and quell any rumors (which they would do if they didn't want their stock prices to adversely be affected).

    Stock prices would drop quickly and drastically if WWDC passes with no new iPhone.

    Although I'm really excited to buy an iPhone this time around, I agree.

    Seriously, Steve Jobs would have an accident in his pants if for some reason someone at apple messed up the 3g iphone launch. If he was forced for whatever disasterous reason to make a last minute delay of the iphone 2.0 launch I'm sure he would be vomiting and quaking in his boots right now as how to break the news to the world!

    If there's no 3G iPhone at WWDC next week, I say we all gather our pitchforks and torches and meet Steve-O at his house!

    oh well

    of course, 3G will be nice but what is going to change everything next week is going to be 3rd party apps. I'm as excited as everyone else is about the possibility of video conferencing, faster access, deleting multiple emails and some of the fun little nuggets that Apple will provide but it is those 3rd party apps (not to mention enterprise) that will keep our heads spinning for months and years to come.

    I'd prolly just react like "Oh, well that kinda sucks I suppose." I'm perfectly happy with my current iPhone; it does everything I need and more.

    Besides, if there's no 3G iPhone, I'll give the market a day or two to let AAPL asplode and then pick some up über cheap and watch it build again on the next rumour :D

    Exactly. Its all about the 2.0 software upgrade and the apps. 3G etc. is just gravy. iPhone OS is absolutely amazing...

    AAPL seems to have drastic changes related to insider news all the time - things the general public doesn't know anything about. I think you are under estimating the effect this would have.

    I think it would drop like a rock - just like it did in January...

    I'm not saying I would agree with that, but that the media and industry has built up huge expectations for the new iPhone, and if Apple doesn't deliver what they EXPECT them to deliver, I'm sure it would tank...

    Keeping up with these expectations is what concerns me most about AAPL...
