9 to 5 Mac reports that Apple CEO Steve Jobs has once again taken the time to respond to customer email, this time offering up a short response to a question about the leaked next-generation iPhone's effect on its Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) presumably scheduled for this summer in San Francisco.
In response to the customer's hope that WWDC will still be exciting even though the essentially-final design of the next iPhone has been seen, Jobs simply teased:
Observers are still waiting for Apple to announce this year's dates for WWDC, although rumors and other evidence have pointed to a possible late June window. Apple has used the conference the past two years to introduce its new iPhone hardware, with launches occurring shortly after the conference.Don't worry about the WWDC. You ain't seen nothing yet.
Update: Moved to Page 2, as 9 to 5 Mac is currently investigating the validity of the email. The email headers provided contain some irregularities with respect to the date the email was sent.
Update 2: The headers on the email have been discovered to come from an earlier email sent from Jobs to a customer, confirming that the new email is indeed a hoax.
