Tonight’s buzz is about $AAPL new iPhone HD, to be announced by Apple on June 22nd. And an iPhone for $VZ. If you believe the WSJ! And Engadget! I don’t care too much one way or another about the Verizon announcement. I know some do. It’s good for $VZ stock, though. Less good for $T stock.

Separately, Apple plans to release a new version of its current iPhone this summer, continuing its practice of annual upgrades at about the same time of year, said people briefed on the matter. The model is likely to be thinner and have a faster processor, two people familiar with the device said.
Soon after the news broke, we were informed that the next-generation iPhone would be announced on June 22nd (a Tuesday, naturally) and would be dubbed the iPhone HD (a name that has been tossed around before).
John Gruber's just weighed in with some more tidbits, in his characteristically polite way. Gruber says the next model will have an A4-class SoC, a 960 x 640 display, a front-facing camera, and that iPhone OS 4.0 will enable third-party multitasking.
Well, and here I am coming up on my 2-year contract expiration. An iPhone or that Sprint HTC Evo 4g? Leaning Apple, because no 4G network in my area just yet. And in 2 years, there will be another phone…
Could the whole thing just be a bunch of stinkin’ rumors? Of course. You never know with Apple. For how long has a Verizon iPhone been rumored? Or multi-tasking operating system? Or a front-facing camera? Hmmm?
