Apple sets WWDC date: June 8-12
Today, Apple officially announced that its annual Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) is scheduled this year for June 8-12 at the Moscone West convention center in San Francisco, California. The conference plays host to some big Apple announcements, generally one focused on operating systems, one about new software, and one about hardware or platform developments.
Last year, the big announcement was the iPhone 3G, but MobileMe was also premiered, and a look at OS 10.6, also known as "Snow Leopard," was given. At that time, the release date for the OS was simply "next year." A later timeline from Apple showed its release as "Q1 2009."
The Baltimore Sun's David Zeiler issued his prediction (along with many others) that June 8th will be the release date for Snow Leopard. Version 3.0 of iPhone is expected to be a big topic of discussion as well, since the system software and development kit updates carry with them no fewer than a dozen functionality upgrades.
