App Store Expected on July 11th, 2008

We’ve been waiting as anxiously as everyone else about the launch of iPhone Firmware 2.0 and the iTunes App Store.

The WWDC keynote gave us no specific release date for the 2.0 Firmware or the App Store.

Recent comments by Apple reps, however, confirm what was tucked away in the iPhone 3G press release: that the 2.0 Firmware and App Store will be released on July 11th.

Existing iPhone users will also be able to run the 2.0 Firmware that lets them download and run 3rd party applications. A number of apps are in development but announcements have been scarce due to concerns about Non Disclosure Agreements surrounding the iPhone SDK. Stay tuned, however, because on launch day we expect there to be hundreds of announcements from 3rd party developers promoting their wares.
