Next Gen iPhone May Launch June 9th

According to Gizmodo inside sources are confirming the June 9 date for the release of the next generation 3G iPhone, which is also when Steve Jobs' keynote at Apple's Worldwide Developers Conference is scheduled.

Eric Zeman at InformationWeek however seems skeptical, "I am going to caution that everyone take this news with a small grain of salt. True, all indicators over the last four weeks have pointed to a launch on or near June 9, but Gizmodo did not reveal exactly who the sources are. Also, remember that the 3G iPhone hasn't been cleared by the FCC yet. With only three weeks to go before the keynote, that's cutting it awfully close."

Without FCC approval legally, the iPhone cannot be sold in the United States. If the FCC doesn't get around to its approval by June 9 then Apple and Steve Job's might be stuck holding the bag.

Supplies of the first-generation iPhone have been dwindling, which has led to lots of speculation about the release of the second generation phone. Its clear Apple needs to get something onto store shelves soon, but will it be the 3G iPhone?
