Jesus Diaz of Gizmodo says he's spoken to "someone very, very close to the 3G iPhone launch" and can now confirm the debut date for Apple's next iPhone: June 9, the day CEO Steve Jobs will address the company's Worldwide Developers Conference in San Francisco.


Everyone had suspected the new iPhone -- with faster 3G Internet speeds -- would be unveiled that day, but Diaz adds that the "second-generation iPhone will be available worldwide right after the launch, and not at year's end, as previously thought."

So there you go: The new iPhone is coming soon, and you can get one. Take the rest of the day off.
