Conference called in Regent Street Apple Store - HAS to be the iPhone in Europe...
Are Apple events becoming less mysterious?
Today Apple has dished out a press release to journos entitled ‘Mum is no longer the word’: it’s the European iPhone launch details and confirmation of its exclusive UK contract with O2, also known as the industry’s worst kept secret.
Anyway, for what it’s worth, you will have to wait until 18 September (we have a morning briefing in the Regent Street Apple Store) to hear straight from the horse’s mouth that the iPhone ”is” being launched in the UK ”on” O2. Hopefully however while the ‘What’ is common knowledge we should finally get the all important ‘When’.
On the other hand, will we get news of a 3G iPhone? Possibly with regards to a future launch date (expect a vague ’08 reference) but I very much doubt Apple would infuriate its existing iPhone owners any more than it already has…
