iPhone Work Delays Leopard

Apple's finding it's not quite as easy to complete a cell phone as they thought. In order to make the June date that previously was announced , Apple's had to pull people off the next release of their OS, code-named Leopard.

"iPhone contains the most sophisticated software ever shipped on a mobile device, and finishing it on time has not come without a price — we had to borrow some key software engineering and QA resources from our Mac OS X team, and as a result we will not be able to release Leopard as planned," said Apple in a rather brief statement.

We Say: Also known as, "this was a lot harder than we thought" or "we have a lot more bugs than we expected". Of course, it could be that what I just said … applies to Leopard rather than iPhone … and this is just a way to save face at WWDC. Assuming it is really an iPhone issue, BTW, those buyers who bid on iPhones on eBay … as I said then, I don't know what they were thinking. That was 3 weeks ago, which is a long time in cell phone ROM time … there's no way the phone would have worked well even if those bidders had gotten a "real deal".
