    Maybe they are seeing how long the delay on the SDK will be until they set a date. They might make the iPhone as a key part of the conference like Leopard was a few years ago.

    That makes sense about being delayed by iPhone SDK.
    But I really hope that iPhone SDK doesn't get Leopard-like focus at WWDC08; to me iPhone is still a niche platform compared to the mac hardware and shouldn't get disproportionate attention, even though it is undoubtedly going to be the "cool new thing".

    i don't see how that would make sense unless the SDK is delayed until june-august. they've set a deadline for themselves to release it by end of february so pushing it all the way to june+ and drag WWDC with it would be a bit excessive, even for apple.

    Still no announcement. Past years the dates seem to have been announced early-/mid-February. In 2006, the year WWDC was held in August, the dates were announced March 7th. Since we're past that date now, is this indicative of an August timeframe for WWDC 2008?

    i really hope not, but based on that, it could even be later than August! :eek:

    i'm assuming it is due to the iPhone SDK, but they said June, so hopefully WWDC will be in June. we'll see

    i would hope they'd have it on time for iPhone 2.0 and AppStore official announcement. unless they're already planning on delaying those too.

    you just never know with :apple: apple...:rolleyes:

    they have yet to announce when the "special" pricing ($1295) expires. i thought they announced it along with WWDC dates last year, no?
