Remember that rumour that said that a 3G iPhone was coming within 60 days, based on a comment made by Apple CEO Steve Jobs’ favourite journalist and Wall Street Journal hack, Walt Mossberg, in a recent event at the Finnish embassy? Well, Mossberg has decided to clean up some of that speculation.
Mossberg told Silicon Alley Insider that he doesnâ€™t actually have any more info on a 3G iPhone than the average man in the street. “If I knew when this date was, why would I announce it in the middle of a sentence at the Finnish embassy, rather than report it in the Wall Street Journal?” he told the publication.
Whether Mossberg has a special link to Apple central or not, his predictions are unlikely to be way off. But given that Mossberg is pretty much as close to Apple as journos get, I’m guessing the prediction is more than likely on the money.
