Though all indicators over the past few weeks have pointed to a launch at Apple’s Worldwide Developers Conference, Gizmodo now claims to have received confirmation
from inside sources that the 3G version of the iPhone will indeed launch on June 9.
No additional specs besides 3G data speeds have been revealed, though Gizmodo seems to have the scoop on the device’s availability. According to them, the second-gen iPhone will be available worldwide right after launch – not at year's end as previously thought – with June 18 as the specific launch day for Spain and similar launch schedules for other European countries with iPhone availability.
Interestingly, Gizmodo also ‘confirms’ more traditional sales policies to go into effect in select countries, such as subsidized pricing for signing up to long-term contracts, and upgrade discounts for current customers.
