CEO expected to show off new iPhone
Apple has now confirmed that CEO Steve Jobs will be hosting the company's WWDC keynote, scheduled for 10AM Pacific time on June 7th. The conference will run until June 11th, and have over 100 sessions and labs. Apple sold out of tickets in just eight days, despite a $300 spike in cost. In excess of 5,000 people are expected to attend.
Jobs has promised that people "won't be disappointed" with WWDC when it comes to phone developments, though as is standard, he has declined to reveal any specifics. The major announcement is expected to be a new iPhone, equipped with a flash, a front-facing video call camera and a higher-resolution display, amongst other upgrades. The company may also be preparing to announce new US carriers, including Verizon and Sprint.
