ThinkSecret’s sources, the same sources who said the iPhone would not be launched in ’06, said it’s set to make its world debut at Macworld SF in January 2007. Apple was having “significant technological hurdles” earlier this year designing a phone that would innovate on whatever is currently out there.
These sources also say that the phone will be one of two or three phones that will be showing up in 2007, which is something that we didn’t know before. The first phone will have a 3-megapixel camera, a 2.2-inch display and all the features of an iPod, down to complete iTunes integration. No word on how much storage will be in this, but we’re guessing somewhere around Nano-ish storage size instead of a hard drive-based phone.
