A new iPhone handset will be due in June if Apple sticks to the past two release cycles of the iPhone.
Apple Insider picked up a statement made by Saudi Arabian carrier Etisalat that just signed an iPhone deal with Apple that a new iPhone device would come in June.
The iPhone nano rumors that sprung up early January also pointed to a June release. The Apple iPhone competition is going to make a big assault at the MWC 2009 in Barcelona this month. Apple will have to respond with a new iPhone this year to fend them off. Update: The new iPhone 2009 - Predictions and Hopes.
