Yesterday we reported on Wall Street Journal technology columnist Wall Mossberg's prediction that the 3G iPhone would launch within 60 days. Today, Mossberg took back the prediction and convinced Silicon Valley Insider by asking:
"If I knew when this date was, why would I announce it in the middle of a sentence at the Finnish embassy, rather than report it in the Wall Street Journal?" Mossberg rhetorically asked the publication. He said he has no idea when Apple is releasing the iPhone and that the 60 day prediction was a "ballpark estimate" based on everything AT&T and Apple have already hinted at publicly.
