Or maybe they just really like to party at the Moscone center.
Are you ready for the iPhone 5? For the first time ever, the rest of the smartphone industry seems to be. There are powerful contenders out now- like the Nexus S- and on the horizon- like the ThunderBolt and Atrix, that can stand against the iPhone without looking cheap, slow or clumsy. We'll get the chance to see how they hold up to Apple's next iPhone between June 5 and 9.
Cult of Mac reports that Apple has once again rented out the Moscone Center. Actually, they've done it three times. June 5-9, May 10-11 and June 22-23 are all marked off. Since the building is already booked for the Worldwide Developer Conference from June 5-9, this could point to a special Apple event.
The June 22-23 dates are almost one year exactly from the launch of the iPhone 4. Some bloggers think that is too close to WWDC to be a major product announcement. I don't really see why that would stop Apple. The launch of a new iPhone is enough of an event to justify its own little circus.
As for those May meeting dates? Maybe we'll see the iPad 2 get official then, but a MacBook Pro refresh seems more likely. May would be awfully late compare to last year's iPad reveal date.
