June 11 iPhone Uncertain
The alleged June 11th iPhone release date is likely the result of confusion, research has revealed. Telephone calls placed to 25 of the company's stores spread across the country presented contradictory information, with many asserting only that the Apple device would be ready sometime in June. Some pointed to delays to July or September triggered by popular demand, while one store pointed to a release as soon as "next month" and another pointed to late May.
Such checks point to the reportedly fixed date as largely speculative. Neither Apple nor AT&T have responded to the earlier claim and have maintained only the general June timeframe. Taiwan's DigiTimes put a stop to rumors of an early release by claiming that iPhone components would only be shipped to Apple's Far East factories in April. [via iPhone Review]
