Apple iPhone Real Soon?

I know this has nothing at all to do with digital photography ... but I've been waiting for an iPhone, so I'm very excited.

Gizmodo Knows: iPhone Will Be Announced On Monday
I guarantee it. It isn't what I expected at all. And I've already said too much. –Brian Lam
No further information is provided, but there is a clear implication that the iPhone is coming this Monday (December 18th).

- $599 for 4GB
- $649 for 8GB
- Wider than the iPod nano
- Thinner than the iPod Video
- Made of Metal
- Multiple colors, but at least including black, white, and silver
- Cingular Wireless is likely carrier in the U.S.
- Update: Clarification: Runkle actually claimed: "full screen LCD; 3.5 inch (28x21)" and approximately 4/10ths of an inch thick. Also incorporates a Virtual Click wheel.

The proposed prices of the iPhone are much higher than the only previous rumor which pointed to $249 and $449 4GB and 8GB models. No details whether these simply represent retail prices that may drop considerably with a service plan commitment.
