“The launch of the next-generation iPhone promises to be Steve Jobs’ greatest stunt yet,” Brian Caulfield reports for Forbes.
“Apple, Jobs’ secretive computer and gadget company, has been quietly positioning millions of units of a mysterious new product–almost certainly the new iPhone–in key markets since March. And yet, incredibly, not one credible image of Apple’s new product has yet been published,” Caulfield reports.
“It’s almost certain Jobs will unveil the latest version of the iPhone June 9, putting the gadget up for sale shortly thereafter,” Caulfield reports. “Ryan Peterson, co-founder at start-up ImportGenius.com, was the first to get the details of how Apple will make this happen. Peterson–an iPhone fan himself–sells shipping data culled from a clutch of government and private databases.”
“On April 23, when Apple Chief Operating Officer Tim Cook told investors on Apple’s quarterly earnings call the company would sell 10 million iPhones before the year was out, he knew that millions of the new phones were already on their way to retailers,” Caulfield reports.
“It’s clear now that Apple has many million units of that ‘special something’ already sitting in distribution centers around the country. We can hardly wait to find out what Jobs has in store,” Caulfield reports.
