WWDC 2009 banners

With less than a week to go before the 2009 Worldwide Developers Conference, staff at the Moscone West conference center have begun putting up various promotional banners in order to greet visitors. The centerpiece is a display spanning much of the Moscone lobby, bearing 2009's slogan: "One year later. Light-years ahead." The phrase is a reference to third-party iPhone apps, which during WWDC will occupy a central place in presentations.

Beyond labs and sessions targeted at iPhone programming, a keynote speech on June 8th should prominently feature the iPhone 3.0 firmware, which may even be released concurrently given the early presence of support in iTunes. Apple is also expected to announce one or more new models of iPhone, which could include features like 7.2Mbps broadband and a video-enabled 3.2-megapixel camera. Such options should increase the types of apps possible.

Other decorations at Moscone include representations of app icons stuck to the windows. High on the building is a giant, temporary Apple logo, giving the center the appearance of a flagship Apple Store, such as the one at Fifth Avenue in New York City. Photos of the artwork were produced by San Francisco resident Adam Jackson.

    Come on, people...

    Would someone get around to leaking real hardware details on the Touches already? After two years, I finally came into some bucks and I'm waiting to pull the trigger on an order.

    Re: come on...

    What do you want to know? Nothing you hear can be considered 'real' since the blogosphere is full of rumors and not much facts. So you'd still end up waiting next week or two weeks for it to be released.

    And you'd want to do that anyway, since if it is a big upgrade (do you think Apple could add a GPS to it?) you'll kick yourself over not having it, and if isn't a big upgrade "Look, we've changed the bezel color!", you can get good deals on the last version model and save some cash.

    New iPhone

    I am eagerly waiting for the new iphone. I need a GPS to play golf with because I do not want to spend $299 on a Garmin device...
