Possible WWDC '09 dates
A potential timeframe for the 2009 Worldwide Developers' Conference has been identified, reports say. The conference is typically held at the Moscone Center in San Francisco, and investigation reveals that a "corporate meeting" has been scheduled for June 6th to the 12th. Most events at the Center are scheduled under identifiable names months in advance, but Apple is said to be known for pretending to anonymity.
The event is always scheduled for approximately mid-year, and anticipated as much by the media and the public as by Mac developers. It is a frequent platform for new product announcements, and during the past two years, has specifically served as the herald of impending iPhone launches. For 2009 it is widely anticipated that Apple will introduce a new iPhone, one which could represent a major revision, such as a second cheaper model. The company will also likely highlight Mac OS X Snow Leopard, launching it shortly thereafter if it has not already debuted.
