3G iPhone Coming in June? Mossberg Inserts Foot in Mouth

Bloggers worldwide went nuts earlier this week when WSJ tech guru Walt Mossberg predicted that the 3G iPhone will be released in June during a speech at Beet.tv's Executive Summit.

But now he's denying it, saying it was just a guess. "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?" he said to Silicon Alley Insider's Peter Kafka.

Fake Steve Jobs suggests that Mossberg's change of heart might actually be the result of a mildly threatening "little chat" with the folks in Silicon Valley…

"Oh Unkie Walt, you toy with us so," complains Engadget's Nilay Patel.
