Apple's June 7th WWDC 2010 keynote is approaching, and thanks to various pre-show leaks of the fourth-generation iPhone HD many are questioning exactly how groundbreaking the Steve Jobs presentation might be.  That seems like the ideal opportunity for an analyst face-off: perennial Apple ponderer Gene Munster, of Piper Jaffray, reckons Apple has "little room for surprise" during the event, while Global Equities Research analyst Trip Chowdhry is predicting a seven minute guest appearance during the keynote by none other than Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer.

Apple iPhone OS 4 Beta 4 Goes Live and Brings Plenty of New Options

The Betas for Apple's iPhone OS 4 have been coming out at a steady pace, but so far none of them have been all that ground breaking, when it comes to feature lists. Sure, Beta 3 released Folders onto unsuspecting people and developers, but still, it wasn't earth shaking. This time around, though, along with a few small pieces of a larger puzzle, we've got something big in the release.

iPhone HD caught running OS 4.0? [Update: Likely fake]

The iPhone HD leaks continue, with the latest tidbit being this image of the handset supposedly running iPhone OS 4.0.  Whether or not the handset is indeed running OS 4.0, it's unusual because we've yet to see a working leaked prototype, rather than one either remotely disabled as in the first leak or showing a test screen as in the second leak.

Apple antitrust inquiry tipped over iPhone OS 4.0 SDK

Apple could soon be the subject of antitrust investigations, if rumors of an inquiry by either the Department of Justice or the Federal Trade Commission turn out to be true.  According to the NYPost, both watchdogs are currently negotiating as to which will take responsibility for looking into Apple's recently tightened iPhone OS development platform rules, which basically made it mandatory for coders to use the Cupertino company's own SDK rather than cross-platform-friendly tools.

The Daily Slash: April 29th 2010

Today, for all intents and purposes, was a big day. Maybe not as big as yesterday, but it's pretty close. Especially if you consider the two cancellations, with the HP Slate getting tossed to the side, along with Microsoft's Courier digital journal. A sad day for the tablet market, indeed. But, we move on, forward unto . . . Well, whatever it is you're heading into. Either way, welcome to the Thursday edition of the Daily Slash. In the Best of R3, we've got the LG Aloha getting a name change, iAd takes a steep turn in the price bracket, and Palm may be ready to face a class-action lawsuit.
