    Presumably any new "info" would not info at all? Merely more speculation. Which has been covered extensively.

    Most of the leaks last year were software but they beat us to it by pre-announcing most of the software upgrades (we think) so its just hardware which is much easier to keep tabs on...

    I'm fine with that, honestly. The rumor mill's only really fun when everything turns out to be wrong and Apple catches us off guard with something we hadn't considered. The times when all the info is spot on, it's really kind of boring.

    Exactly. Like knowing your birthday present ahead of time. Seems good and all until you open it and realize its not exciting. But if you open it and its completely different, the excitement begins again.

    My guess is the phone will be improved but not drasticlly different from the 3G. So there is not too much to leak other then what we have already read.

    There have been next to no pictures been leaked either. We almost solidly knew by this time last year that the case we saw was going to be the 3g case. We knew almost everything for sure about the 3g by now last year. Things seem to be kept WAYYYY more underwraps this year. I can't wait for WWDC tho, I'm much more excited about that, then my own birthday this saturday.

    I agree. I feel like I "know" basically everything about the new iphone (that is, there have been a number of rumors about every aspect of the device - I in fact *know* nothing).
