Boy Genius Report has just reported that AT&T has confirmed to its employees that the next generation iPhone will launch in June.

We had reported back in April that AT&T had put a block on all employee vacations for the month of June, which had indicated that Apple will launch iPhone 4G in June.

BGR briefly reports:

Title says it all, but you didn’t really need a confirmation, did you? The phone will be available for purchase in June, not July, and from what we’ve heard, it won’t even be late June.

Google made some big announcements at Google I/O Conference last week. One of them was the launch of Android OS 2.2, dubbed Froyo. So what is Steve Jobs’ take on the latest announcement?

A couple of emails exchanged between Apple enthusiasts and Steve Jobs over the weekend shows that Apple may counter Google’s threat with few big announcements at Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) 2010, which starts on June 7.

In one email, a London based iPhone user asked Steve Jobs about his opinion on the Google I/O announcements and if Apple had similar announcements lined up for the as well. In his response, Steve Jobs is noted to have replied, “You won’t be disappointed”.

Clearly a white front plate was not enough to satisfy curiosity. Though we aren’t able to verify this ourselves, Chinese site Apple.pro has a couple shots of what it claims to be the white next-gen iPhone, almost fully assembled (the front plate looks like it hasn’t been snapped in all the way) and casually lounging next to the black model we’ve gazed upon so many times at this point. Is this enough for us to trust and comfortably change our palette preferences? Nah, but surely 15 days until expected confirmation can’t be too excruciating of a wait.

As the rumored launch date for iPhone 4G draws closer, the talk of an end to AT&T’s carrier exclusivity has been growing louder.

Earlier this month, we had heard reports that Apple has contracted Pegatron Technology to ship close to 10 million CDMA iPhone handsets in 2010.

Brushing aside concerns about subscribers fleeing to Verizon, AT&T Wireless CEO Ralph de la Vega had noted yesterday that a lot of AT&T subscribers have signed up for family plans and corporate discount plans. He said that these plans would serve as incentives for the existing subscribers to stay with Ma Bell in the event of AT&T losing its exclusive-carrier status.

As our extensive KIRF library shows, China’s one wild country that can make almost anything you don’t want, so don’t mind us while we inspect this new finding with extra caution. This particular Chinese online seller not only claims to have parts for the next-gen iPhone, but also one white face plate — something not seen on iPhones thus far. While we drool over the thought of an all white Apple handheld, there are still questions to be answered here: the seller wasn’t able to explain what that silver bit above the speaker is, nor have we seen white back plates to match this. Furthermore, we were given a “maybe” for a bulk order of 15 to 20 units, which is quite a lot for something that’s not even out yet, but we were told over the phone that there’s always a back door to Foxconn as long as you wave cash at someone. Not that you should engage in such risky business, plus this piece’s authenticity will be revealed in about three weeks’ time, anyway. One more shot after the break.
