Due to a leak by Gizmodo last week, which appeared to preview Apple’s next generation iPhone, it seems as though Apple could very well unveil and release the iPhone 4g sooner rather than later. But why would they do that you might ask?
Well, in an email to Cult of Mac, Piper Jaffray analyst Gene Munster said that he thinks Apple might release the fourth-generation iPhone earlier than expected because now that Gizmodo have released their bombshell scoop, it seems as though iPhone lovers would rather wait for the new release rather than shelling out for something that would be pretty much obsolete when the iPhone 4g hits the shelves.
According to Munster, he said that “it’s safe to say, more people are waiting for the new one,” therefore resulting in “negative” sales for the existing iPhone models.
Rumors are suggesting that June 22 could be the day that Apple reveal the new iPhone 4g at the Moscone Center in San Francisco. You should also note that Apple have revealed its past two iPhone models at their annual Worldwide Developer Conference which also takes place in June.
But if Munster is correct, we could see an announcement as early as May, any later than that would make this entire email pointless. But the fact of the matter is, do you think Munster is right in his prediction?
