Steve Jobs confirmed for WWDC 2010 keynote

Pushing out a press release confirming that CEO Steve Jobs will be taking to the stage at WWDC 2010 for the opening keynote is unlikely to save Apple from accusations of an over-talkative PR machine, but it all helps pave the way for a likely next-gen iPhone HD debut on June 7th.  Jobs will be taking a break from dictating Apple's movements by email to open the developer conference at 10am PST, and SlashGear will be there to liveblog the whole thing.

As for what we're expecting, frequent leaks over the past couple of months have made a squared-off next-gen iPhone – tentatively predicted to be the iPhone HD – look all the more likely.  The handset is expected to have a higher-megapixel main camera together with a new, front-facing camera, as well as a higher-resolution touchscreen.

We'll find out for sure on June 7th, so join SlashGear at for all the details Steve announces as they happen.
