June 08, 2009, 7:53 AM — Apple enthusiasts are all on the edge of their seats today, waiting for WWDC to begin. The fun starts at 10 am PT with Phillip Schiller's keynote.
The 'rumors' of a new iPhone model are so widespread that it'll be much more surprising if it doesn't happen than if it does. Exact specs are still hazy though. General upgrading seems likely: faster processor, more ram. How about a front facing camera for video chat? Maybe. How about that 3D chip we talked about last week. Hmm, that one hasn't gotten a lot of traction so probably not likely.
What about the iTablet? Analyst Gene Munster of Piper Jaffray said not this year; was he right? Or will Apple surprise us? Can we still be surprised in this era of leaks and rumors?
If there have been any rumors about Macs I haven't heard them. It's a curious place we've arrived at: Apple's computers seem to be a sideshow and not what everyone is talking about.
So will there be a "One more thing" moment when something completely unexpected gets announced? What will it be? What do you hope it will be. Please leave a comment. Me, I still want an Apple e-reader, and I remain the sole voice in the wilderness declaring that they retired their iBook line to free up the name for an e-reader. (That's based 100% on my selfish desires, not on any insider information!)
