    As most know here on the forums that Apple is giving a "sneak peak" of iPhone 4.0.

    I'm not a developer or anything special in the Apple world, so my question is whether I'll get to SEE the sneak peak or if Apple will go all 007 super secret on my average user a$$...?

    What do you think? Will the peek be made public or will all you "special folk" be signing papers and handing over cell phones...

    Yay for 4.0 :D :apple:

    there could be a keynote like usual or somebody on the inside will post stuff no doubt about it:D
    any way they have to give us sum assurance or people will get board. With all the other cell platforms doing all the stuff we cant they have to do something

    I'd assume so. I THINK (not sure) you can get 3.1.3 on the original iPhone from 2007 so with that said I vote YES.

    Somebody is always sneaky thankfully. I wonder how often that is set up on purpose...?

    I completely agree about the other cell phones. Apple has to tease us a little or even die hards like myself may start looking into other options this summer when my contract ends.

    Go big Apple :apple:

    That would be why they invite the media to these events.......

    lol - Yeah.

    It'd be pretty weird to invite the media but then tell them "but don't tell anyone!"

    I haven't read one word about the media getting an invite.

    My question is will they preview a new iPhone as well as showing off the new OS?

    From macrumors home page :D
    What would be the point in a publicity event with no publicity?

    That will happen in June. It typically happens no more than a month before it is released.

    Are you serious? It says right in the first line, media invitations.

    My bad, sorry about the little bit of hostility there. I checked the time from your post, and MacRumors post, and assumed that was the one you read.

    They'll announce their plan and stuff and flaunt it a bit. Just expect to see being able to run more than one thing at once, which seems to be the most likely to come from 4.0, as other things too.

    This already went public, there will be a keynote like with iPhone OS 3.0 and 2.0 which will be available for anyone, they can't go 007 when they invite so many developers and it goes to the homepage of several website like MacRumors or engadget

    They'll post a keynote on their "Apple Keynotes" podcast in the iTunes store. Also, there will certainly be (authorized or otherwise) live-bloggers from Engadget, Your Mac Life, or others streaming video or text from the event.

    I have 3.1.3 on my original iPhone, so yes, I'd think that at least the 3G will get 4.0. Hopefully, so will my original. Or, at least some of the stuff. :D

    That was before apple was having any serious competition.
    The latest comscores are showing android making advances but apple is stagnant/losing ground.

    Android based phones are being released at a faster schedule, if apple continues to sit on their hands and not say anything about a new iPhone they will continue to lose market share.

    Don't roll your eyes at me because you asked a question that seems to have a fairly obvious answer. :rolleyes:

    I don't believe that Apple is worried about that. They will not let other companies force their hand, and will release new hardware when they are ready to.
