Rumor Smashed: AT&T's iPhone Black Reference Just Placeholder Text

Illustration for article titled Rumor Smashed: ATTs iPhone Black Reference Just Placeholder Text

An AT&T spokesperson just told us that the iPhone Black dropdown reference on the AT&T Wireless website is just a temporary placeholder. The spokesperson says that it was used over the weekend for a "scheduled catalog update," distinguishing the various iPhone models (4GB, 8GB and 16GB). Sorry dudes, the 3G iPhone is probably not called the iPhone Black. Unless, of course, the spokesperson was just covering AT&T's butt, which could always be possible.

iPhone 3G is coming soon. We all know that. It's not news. This is probably a mistake and cover-up, but who knows. I seriously doubt the iPhone is coming before late June, despite the rumors. Where's the FCC approval? We don't have that yet. When is the announcement scheduled? It has to be WWDC because nothing else has been announced. And when were AT&T employees told to hold off their vacations? June 15 - July 15. So don't expect anything before then. And that's pretty darn soon anyway.
