Apple Diverts Resources To Meet June iPhone Launch

Article Comments  78

In a statement yesterday, Apple confirmed that the iPhone is on track to launch in late June. When it was announced in January, both Apple and Cingular were firm about a June launch, but neither company specifically pointed to the end of the month. In order to meet the June deadline, Apple has said it had to pull engineers who were working OS X 10.5 (Leopard) onto the project, delaying the release of the new OS until October.

I fully agree, people are so blinded by freain apple.

I hope someday everyone realizes the iPhone has NOTHING NEW. Not only that but they would realize that for the same price you can buy like a 30 gig iPod plus a really nice phone on a network that doesn't suck. I love Mac fanboys because Mac just rips ...

who's laughing now....

I seem to recall apple making fun of microsoft for delaying the realease of Vista... Kinda funny now that the shoe is on the other foot.
Enh, Leopard is delayed a few months. Vista was delayed several years, several times. And Vista is generally regarded to be overhyped, overpriced, overbugged, undersupported, underthought, and an overall disappointment not even close to worth the 5 ...

where's their fcc filing?

Shouldn't we have sar w/kg ratings and other info by now if it really launches in June?
Typically, yes, but then again I've seen phones be approved by the FCC as little as one week before launch.

You can't compare the Horrorola SH*TZR to the iPhone! Come on, you know this. If you don't; well, I'm sorry. You have a lot of catching up to do Rolling Eyes

MAD RUSH TO RELEASE!

This makes me even more weary of the first release of the phone if they are behind and having to pull additional people to make the deadline, They will more than likely cut corners somewhere and there WILL be bugs. No question.

ARE THEY GOING TO ADD 3G AND WIFI??

I think that is going to be a big mistake in hindsight, any thoughts??
It has Wi-Fi. Always has.

As for 3G, if they're having this much trouble getting the 2G version out the door, and they're that serious about meeting the deadline, then no, I'd say that pretty much puts the nail in the coffin for the idea of 3G in t...

bitter sweet...

as great as it is to have the iphone on track, i was looking forward to leopard more. as a (broke) mac user, leopard was more realistic to get in june than the iphone. agreed?
So say we all Sad

I'm in sad need of a new phone, but as of now, I think I'll just spend $30 on a refurb Nokia 6030 so that I'll be sure to have some $$ when the new iMac model drops. Maybe I'll have enough for an iPhone too. . .
