Steve Jobs To Host WWDC & Launch The iPhone 4G?

Apple's charismatic CEO, Steve Jobs, has confirmed that he will attend the company's annual Worldwide Developer Conference which will take place from the 7th to the 11th of June, in the Moscone West centre in San Francisco.

Jobs replied to one of the many questions forwarded by Apple aficionados directly to the inbox of the master of Fruitiness himself. Bryan Webster, one of the lucky guys, probed him about how the company was going to respond to the growing threat of Google.

Google has just released its latest version of its mobile operating system, Android OS 2.2 also known as Froyo. According to many observers, the latter could well be the tipping point OS for Google, the one which finally allows the search engine to surpass Apple.

Jobs however is not convinced; he wrote "You won't be disappointed" before adding in another email that there's not a chance that Google will manage to take the lead from Apple in the mobile area.

WWDC, which runs for five days, will focus primarily on developers but there are rumours that Apple will also launch a new series of iPod Touch devices including one with an inbuilt camera.

As for the iPhone 4G, the latest rumours point to the presence of video conferencing features, something that would bring it on par with the rest of the competition. You can read and follow all our articles on the iPhone 4G here.
