Some seem to think that Apple is going to make the new Phone available for purchase during the WWDC. I'm wondering what the basis is for this belief? It obviously isn't consistent with previous iPhone refreshes and to me personally it seems even less likely this time for several reasons: 1. A new form factor. It seems like Apple would want at least a few weeks to hype the new design, although it could be argued that this was accomplished already because of the lost prototype. 2. Features in high demand such as a flash, higher resolution camera and a front facing camera. Again, these are things that I would assume they'd want to hype up prior to release. 3. Long awaited OS additions, like the multitasking. 4. Pre-ordering online and in-store reservations. This is something that was pushed last year and seemed to work fairly well. 5. No hype generating line-ups. Every iPhone release thus far has had a line-up of some type. Apple even encourages this at their stores by giving out food and drinks. A sudden release would seem to impact such line-ups. 6. Recent plan changes from AT&T. Although I don't really think Apple cares much for AT&T, a release during the WWDC might hinder their opportunity to convey all of this to potential iPhone customers. So, I am having trouble understanding how a release during WWDC would greatly benefit Apple. Is it just wishful thinking on the part of some, or is there more concrete evidence that I am missing?
