AT&T’s Web site for wireless devices, including smartphones and the iPhone, went off line late Sunday night ahead of Apple’s World Wide Developer Conference scheduled to start Monday morning. Apple’s event will kick off with a keynote presentation with CEO Steve Jobs where the company is expected to introduce the next generation iPhone.
The AT&T Web site currently states “We’re improving our site to make it better for you,” which doesn’t indicate the company is preparing for iPhone-related announcements. The timing of the site maintenance, however, has led to speculation that changes at the AT&T Web site are more than coincidence.
AT&T: Making things better for us.
While Apple hasn’t confirmed that the new iPhone will be unveiled at WWDC, the timing fits the company’s usual product upgrade cycle. This year’s developer conference is more heavily focused on iPhone and iPhone OS-related topics.
Apple’s World Wide Developers Conference is scheduled to run from June 7 through June 11 at the Moscone Convention Center in San Francisco. Mr. Jobs’s keynote presentation will be at 10AM pacific time on Monday, June 7.
