We've all heard the rumors that the iPhone 2.0 firmware would be out
at WWDC 08, but we have received some information that begs to differ.
According to the information that we have, it will be released late
June/early July. This is because of Apple's deal with the cell
carriers -- currently, Apple has to give the cell carriers a "first
look" at the new firmware before it can ship; normally this takes
around 1-2 weeks.

According to our sources, the 2.0 firmware went gold master this week,
which means it will be in the hands of the cell carriers for 1-2
weeks. If Apple doesn't have to fix anything in the firmware, then it
will be released to the public -- otherwise, they will have to fix the
problems and start the process over again.
