No Steve Jobs

Earlier today (5/13) Apple announced that Phil Schiller will deliver the keynote for the WWDC event on 6/8. Steve is still expected to come back at the end of June and his name was not mentioned in todays release.

No New iPhones.

WWDC will focus on Snow Leopard, the latest Mac OSX addition. Many thought for months this would be the event which would see the new iPhone lineup. TinyComb expects Jobs to deliver the new iPhone or iPhones at the end of June or early July (Silicon Alley Insider on this hunch too). There is no point in taking any steam away from the new OS. The new iPhone is and will be one of the most anticipated products of the year and needs its own event.

No Tablet

Many have also believed Apple to introduce their touch screen tablet that was recently granted a patent licence. This will not make an appearance this June. Expect 2010.
