Yesterday, after my iPhone post, a visitor in comments claimed to have spoken to a Cingular Premier Accounts rep who allegedly told him the iPhone would be released the first week of June as a surprise for customers.

It kinda looks like an iPhone, and it’s even got a touchscreen, but the dual-band GSM phone is noticeably thicker, has a crap UI, and is adorned with a huge, gaudy Apple logo on the backside.
