WWDC Tomorrow: iPhone 3GS?

While previous rumors had Apple announcing iPhone video tomorrow at WWDC 2009, Daring Fireball's John Gruber has just put up his predictions and, at least in code name form, they're going with "iPhone 3GS" -- though they don't offer what the "S" stands for...

In the past, Daring Fireball's predictions have at times seemed closer akin to inside information, so it's worth paying attention to. In terms of specs, Gruber is sticking with what he previously predicted:

iPhone OS 3.0 Unlock Warning

Tomorrow is the start of WWDC and there are some people out there who truly believe Apple will official release the iPhone OS 3.0 software very soon. Whether or not it is released this week or within the next month, don't be so quick to pull the trigger on the upgrade button within iTunes if you are planning on unlocking your device. If you choose to update there is a high possibility that you will lose your option to unlock in the future. Don't want to listen to us, ok, will you take the Dev-Teams word for it?

WWDC Banners: More iPhone than Mac?

We linked to a WWDC banner a few days ago that highlighted iPhone apps. Looks like it wasn't alone. Cocoia Blog has posted a few more pictures, another on apps (covering the entire front entrance facade of Moscone Center, above), and one on iPhone OS 3.0. Not so many for Mac OS X Snow Leopard, which simply retreads, and now has to share the "World's most advanced operating system" tag. Check out the full post for more, but the disparity led them comment:

It does seem like the Mac is just a small side-note, though.

Yet Another Possible 3rd Gen iPhone?!

Yeah, we're suffering just as much anticipointment over all these possible maybe blurry photoshopped "leaks" of the 3rd gen iPhone as you are. But the wait for WWDC's Monday keynote -- for the real answers! -- is just about driving us batty anyway, so we might as well distract ourselves.

Engadget grabbed this one from Nowhere Else. How does it grab your?

[Thanks to @jeffdc5 for the tip!]

More 3rd Gen iPhone Concepts: The Ultra-Thin!

Fonzman1984 sent this one our way a couple days ago, posted on a French-language website fakeorreality.com, though it's spread far and wide since (and thanks everyone else for the tips!)

Current rumors have it Apple will keep the third gen iPhone looking pretty much the same as the current iPhone 3G, but like with previous concepts, what do you think of this approach?

Saturday Fun Leaks: Is this the 16x9 iPhone video?

We get leaked third generation iPhone pictures. Not all of them are compelling enough to post or link to, but every once and a while, something comes in that fires off the old brainstorms. See above.

This one was sent to us by Emanuel who said simply, "Hello, this is leaked Photo of the iPhone video coming out June 9."

Date aside -- how tall is that screen now? Quite a bit taller than the current iPhones and iPods touch. We've heard rumors of a repositioned ear piece before, and this could certainly be a reason for it.

Not only is it taller, however, it's also exactly 16x9, that magical widescreen video ration the current iPhone achieves by letter-boxing, and what the Zune HD will have by going with a slimmer 272x480 display.

Apple can't cut pixels -- it would play havoc with all those 40,000ish apps that count on every single one of the current 320x480. Assuming Apple adds to them then, we'll be looking at 320x570.

Adding pixels wouldn't create the same problem for developers, since current apps would still fit on the wider screen. However, instead of having to letter-box video as much (some video is even wider than 16x9), Apple would suddenly be letter-boxing (or pillar-boxing) everything else. That doesn't sound like Apple.

We'll speculate after the break!
