Walt Mossberg of the WSJ is known for getting iPhone hardware weeks ahead of time, so did he unintentionally confirm twice, in his Palm Pre review, that Apple will launch new hardware at WWDC?
Unfortunately for Palm, Apple has both a new iPhone operating system and new iPhone hardware coming, likely available within a month, that could obviate many of these advantages.
I'd note that the new iPhone to be unveiled next week will have lots of added features that could alter those calculations.
It's not like everybody didn't already know that new iPhone hardware was coming soon, but for Mossberg to say it in a review, it's all but certain. One, he doesn't just make things up. Two, he has that special relationship with Apple we talked about earlier that lets him get seated at Apple events early, with the VIPs. It's safe to say he knows what he's talking about.
