Folks at BGR thinks that the next-gen iPhone will go on sale on Friday, June 18th 2010 in US market. Their prediction is based on the confirmations received from multiple AT&T store reps that their sales quotas for the month of June are ridiculously high. Yes, this means the iPhone 4G (aka iPhone HD) is confirmed to launch in June, not July.
According to BGR, if the iPhone HD/4G is launched in the last week of June, on Friday the 25th, the stores won’t be able to meet the new sales quotas (in-store orders don’t count as they don’t get recognized until the customer picks them up).
We have heard stores having a 25-30% increase in their sales quota, so we’d like to think the next Apple iPhone will launch on Friday, June 18th.
