"we couldn’t help but notice that “Coming in July” had been replaced with “Coming Soon.” There’s no way that Apple would change that unless something was up"

Uh-oh. August release for iPhone 4? Maybe..
I better find some UK-based friends ASAP!

I just bought another 3GS yesterday because I don't currently have an iPhone and I knew this would happen to the countries that weren't in the initial release.
I think we will be pushed back to August or maybe even September.

I had a look at the Apple Canada site. They aren't selling the 3GS 16 and 32gb phones anymore by the look of it. There's the 8gb with iOS4 on it, and "Coming Soon" under pictures of the new 4 phone. iPhone 3GS & iPhone 4 - Apple Store (Canada) (http://store.apple.com/ca/browse/home/shop_iphone/family/iphone?mco=OTY2ODA2OQ)

They are due to release the same as us. Our website doesn't even have "Coming soon" on it..... or a reference to July I could find.

I must admit, this is a worrying development (I think).

Did the front page of apple.com/au ever say "Coming in July"?
There's currently no indication of a date anywhere on the site...

That's what's worrying. I'm sure it used to say "Coming in July" before. Maybe I'm wrong ... but the Canadian site was changed. Bad joojoo.

Well you pay VAT in the UK but it would be unlocked unlike the US.

Can't do that, not sure whether you meant the UK because US devices are locked to AT&T. :( Lets hope that it is before august, my brothers nokia is almost dead and can't hold on until then.

It's not actually delayed.

Calm down – the iPhone 4 hasn’t been delayed (for now) | iTech Report (http://itechreport.com/2010/06/calm-down-the-iphone-4-hasnt-been-delayed-for-now/)

so does anyone know of the prices on UK website are including VAT or whatever taxes they have or its included later ?

currently it says 499 pounds for 16 gb which equates to around 850 today. I can get my uncle to buy and send it to me if it gets delayed here like iPad

Normally later is better for me from a financial standpoint, but this time is a double-edged sword. I have found a buyer for my 3GS, but if they have to wait too long, its all over :(

On an contracted MRO (such as Telstra) you'll probably only end up paying about $650.

If you look at the 8GB iphone 3GS it says shipping July 24.
I assume the date the 4 is released.

I'm OK with it because it means I can spend a little money on other stuff like a new headset while I wait for the iPhone 4.
