AT&T boss confirms 3G iPhone?

AT&T boss confirms 3G iPhone?

Those sneaky gadget fans at Gizmodo have been earwigging other people’s conversations, but we’re glad they did: they just overheard AT&T’s Mobility CEO Ralph de la Vega drop a big hint about the next-gen iPhone.

Speaking at an AT&T event in the US, the mobile boss said he expected all of the firms ‘smart integrated devices’ (that’s smartphones to non-business types) to be 3G in the next couple of months.

Then, when PC Magazine’s Sascha Segan pulled him to one side to ask about the iPhone, Vega dropped his hint: “Let me repeat what I said: I think that you're going to see our integrated devices be 3G devices in the not-too-distant future, and I mean months. That should be clear enough."

Even discounting April (which we’re only three days into), we think that puts the 3G iPhone on track for a June release, at least in the States. And since Britain is awash with 3G networks, we’d expect it here very soon afterwards.
