EA to Unleash Sims 3 for the iPhone this Summer!

Hey iPhone users, not enough excuses yet to abandon real life and run down your battery? Never fear, EA is here! Seems the uber-developer is readying a release of Sims 3 for the iPhone (and iPod Touch). Says TUAW:

it's set for an almost simultaneous release on PC, Mac, the iPhone and the iPod touch. The popularity of iPhone apps may have done what Mac gamers couldn't do for years: convince developers that releasing their games simultaneously on Mac and PC was worth it.

PC version set to ship June 2. No release date for the iPhone version yet, but EA claims Summer 2009.

Anyone here eager to get their Sims on?
