WWDC 2010, a keynote with no surprises? – Macitynet.it
Two iPhone prototypes that, in one way or another, ended up in the hands of journalists and enthusiasts who analyzed them in detail and a new firmware of which almost everything is known: analyst Gene Munster of Piper Jaffray says that there will be few surprises to expect from the Worldwide Developers Conference on June 7. The analyst believes that Apple will inevitably announce the fourth generation iPhone, with front-facing camera for videoconferencing, longer battery life, improved rear camera and thinner design but according to him users should not be under the illusion of more than they should: there will be few the juicy news that will come out of the conference reserved for developers.
Munster does not believe in agreements with Verizon or Sprint either but is convinced that the iPhone in the US will still be an AT&T exclusive. Claims regarding a mini-demo of the future Mac OS X 10.7 seem less likely: this year's WWDC reserved for the iPhone and responding a few weeks ago to an email from a developer on the fate of the Design Award (annual award reserved for the best Mac applications), Steve Jobs replied that the company for this year's event decided to focus (though not exclusively) on iPhone OS. "Maybe next year we'll go back to dealing mainly with Macs," added the CEO of Apple, "the normal cycle of things."
Following the Google I / O conference held last week, many believe that Apple has some surprises or "special effects" in store. The Mountain View giant amazed the press and the public with the ads related to Android and Google TV; many now expect a conference full of surprises from the Cupertino company.
Recall that a few days ago, in a very short email exchange between that Bryan Webster and Steve Jobs about the upcoming WWDC, the Apple CEO replied with a "You won't be disappointed".
