All signs point to new iPhone in June

In case you missed the various signs and hints of the pending arrival of the next iPhone, here’s a round-up of stuff from just the past day or so.

  1. iPhone with white front panel shows up on Apple.pro side-by-side with one with a black front panel like the ones we’ve previously seen. [BGR]
  2. Steve Jobs has been announced as the Keynote speaker at WWDC starting on June 7. Indicates he has something to say. Also, the conference is pretty much dedicated to the iPhone OS this year, so he almost has to announce a new iPhone. [BGR]
  3. Shipments of the 8GB iPhone 3G are said to be halted, indicating it is discontinued. [BGR] In addition, it is reported that Wal-Mart will be offering the 16GB iPhone 3GS for $97 with two-year contract. Basically, the existing models are being bumped down and out to make room for a new model. [Giz]

Of course, the new OS has already been described in detail and we’ve been deluged by leaks about the hardware. Not much room for surprises this time around. Just a matter of learning the exact date at this point.

    I’ve gotta say….this is the first year that I’m not all that excited. Maybe thanks to Gizmodo, no surprises? Maybe because I’m still enamored with my 3G iPad? I dunno… Of course I’ll still get one…because I’m sick like that.

      You and me both (except I don’t have an iPad). I’d even say the fact I had already planned on upgrading this year is part of the reason for my dampened excitement. I must admit though, two years does feel like a long time between upgrades. I’m starting to sympathize with the annual upgraders.
