WWDC round up

Apple's Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) is set to kick off Monday with a keynote by Apple CEO Steve Jobs, where he will show off a demo of Mac OS X 10.5 "Leopard". Little is known about the next incarnation of Mac OS X aside from the integration of "Boot Camp" Windows booting technology into the operating system. Several photos of posters in the building hosting the event have sparked speculation that Leopard may be a 'true' 64-bit operating system; however, most reports suggest that Apple will introduce a new Intel-based version of Apple's professional desktops. Reports indicate that while the enclosure may be similar, the computer is expected to receive a major technical overhaul. Others speculate that other products may also be introduced, as Intel recently released the 64-bit Core 2 Duo 'Conroe' desktop processor and has announced plans to ship the laptop variant of Core 2 Duo 'Merom' early next month. Recent analyst reports have called for an iPod-base phone by Apple originally fueled by reports in March claiming Apple was looking for an 'iPhone' supplier. [Photos included]
