So . . . when's the WiMAX iPhone coming out?

Now that nearly a year’s worth of 3G iPhone rumors have been put to rest by the official unveiling of the iPhone 3G (8GB: $199, 16GB: $299; available July 11) at WWDC today, we’re already overdue to begin speculating about its successor.

The WiPhone or iPhoMAX, as it’s known to "sources close to Apple," will likely be announced at Macworld and released in mid-July 2009. In keeping with the iPhone 3G’s improvements over the original device, "anonymous tipsters" suggest that the iPhoMAX will feature a 4-inch 800 x 400 touchscreen, 64GB SSD, SD card slot, integrated WiMAX, and even thinner casing made of platinum and diamond dust. In other words, just as most agree that the second-gen iPhone is a significant upgrade to the first-gen model, "analysts" confirm that the iPhoMAX will put the iPhone 3G to shame.
