    With all the hype over iPhone 2.0, what about the OS and AppStore launch? I hope Apple goes ahead and released that to the existing iPhone user base today!

    That would give me plenty to do until the new iPhones hit the store!

    This is my train of thought as well, but I doubt if it happens.

    I'm hoping for sometime today, but wouldn't be surprised if it said to be released "later in the week"

    I am hoping 2.0 comes out today, because wasn't 1.4 released at Macworld earlier this year? Also, I'd think that Apple would want to get 2.0 out before the 3G iPhone comes out, although I'm sure they've done plenty of testing with it already.

    Didn't Jobs say that it would be released in late June?

    Yes. It makes perfect sense for everything to go live today. For the first time in Apple's history WWDC has completely sold out. This means Apple have a huge opportunity in front 5000+ developers to say 'The SDK is final ... We're shipping it tonight ... so you can all start developing for the iPhone, from today! - and guess what ... One More Thing ... We are now declaring the iTunes App Store also open for business! - Version 2.0 will ship tonight for both iPhone & iPod touch' ....

    Releasing the software after WWDC .. it just won't have enough hype/attention as it would do if they released it in less than 5 hours.

    Com'on Apple, do it today ... for all of us.

    Yeah, he did. I'm with you. I don't think we'll see anything for 3 weeks or so yet.

    I read (here I think?) that it went gold master last week but the carriers require 10 or so days of software testing to make sure it doesn't do any damage to their network. So if all that info is true, the 2.0 firmware won't be released until late this week or early next week (at the earliest). So that is right in line with new phone announcement today and available on Friday or next week. Guess we'll find out in a few hours.

    No, but the keynote behind him said that. He just said shipping in June.

    This is what Im thinking....

    They already said months ago at the last apple event that the Update would be the later part of June (around the 19th I think)...I also think the phone will be announced today but not released until later in the month...However always the slim hope of this happening....

    I look forward to getting the phone, but since already owning one who really cares if it comes out today or next week.

    No.

    I think:
    1. Final SDK today
    2. Three weeks of testing to ensure absolutely all the major and most of the minor bugs are gone.
    3. Late June, possibly early July the App store and version 2.0 will debut.

    3G phone announced today, shipping in 6 weeks following expedited FCC approval.

    Remember this is for developers, they don't care about hardware - only about ways to get their software onto that hardware so that they can make money.

    Any consumer stuff is handled by MWSF and the occasional special event.

    I'm sorry, they can't wait 6 weeks before shipping a phone. It's already been over 4 weeks since Apple's been out of stock on iPhones. They're not going to go 2+ months of not selling the product. I'm guessing it's already FCC approved under that protection clause or whatever they supposedly have. Waiting 6 more weeks can kill their chances of 10 million phones and will probably cause the stock to tank. I'll be shocked if it's not shipping within 2 weeks, possibly by the end of this week.

    I agree, but they'll probably ship the iPhone at the end of June.

    I think 2.0 will release today and the new iPhone later in the month. I can't see them releasing at the same time or close to the same time. Can you imagine all the iPhone users trying to upgrade to 2.0 and all the new customers trying to activate their new phone? It has disaster written all over it. In my opinion, they will try to put as much space between the release of the 3g iPhone and 2.0 as they can

    Well, being an Aussie I'm not totally up to speed on the FCC approval process but I remember there being a 6 week version of the approval process where the images the FCC takes along with all the findings can be kept confidential.

    Maybe they've already been done, I don't know but if the phone ships tomorrow it'll have 1.1.4 on it - 2.0 isn't final yet, it can't be till the SDK is final and tested into the ground so that the corporations Apple are courting can approve the iPhone for use. They're not going to do that based on the usual level of testing Apple do ie. early adopters are beta testers who just happened to pay full price.

    The firmware really has nothing to do with the SDK, they are seperate entities. The only thing that links them is the 2.0 firmware ability to download and use the created software from the SDK. They can be released as final at different times.

    If you remember when the Iphone was released in Europe it had a newer version update than everyone in the US...They could release the phone today with 2.0 and then have others download later this month

    They could do that, but as that firmware was more on a revisional update to provide Europe networks in the base code. This firmware update is a bit more important, I can't see them releasing just on the phone and then downloads later. Given the nature of the AppStore requiring it it would be daft to have the final code only available on 1/3 of the devices that can use it (iPhone, 3G iPhone and iPod Touch), that is more lost revenue in the initial stages of the firmware's life.

    I am still a firm believer in 1.1.5 for hardware support only. When 2.0 releases then you can update. I thought the current beta expired on June 4th or something like that. There is no way they got the iPhones pre-loaded with 2.0, packaged, shipped from China, and distributed by today. I also agree with 2.0 final version today.
