Don’t expect Steve Jobs to tell you anything about this, but word on the street is that the Cupertino-based company is working on a 3G version of the Apple iPhone and this speed demon is being geared for a May release. It’s unclear whether the 3G variant of the Apple iPhone will hit American shores immediately, because there appears to be a greater demand for 3G handhelds in Europe and Asia.
More specifically, a manager from Telefonica of Spain told The Register that he fully expects the iPhone to be launched in Spain some time in May. He goes on to say that Telefonica expects their version of the iPhone to boast 3G connectivity. From this statement, it makes more sense to conclude that the first 3G iPhone will rock European-friendly airwaves rather than North American ones.
Naturally, this is still one huge unsubstantiated rumor and there’s no way that you should fully believe a random manager of some foreign cell phone service provider. But hey, that’s all we have to go by for now.
