No cameo from Steve. No front facing camera for AT&T to not support. No updates to Apple TV or the iPods (though not really expected).
No netbook/bookreader challenger to Kindle? Thanks for the coverage! - Muck

All told, a good keynote. Nothing that hadn't been leaked other than the new laptop pricing.
Mark H
Thanks very much for tuning in to the 148Apps coverage of the WWDC in 2009, we'd really appreciate your feedback on the products Apple have announced, and also on the coverage we've produced in the comments. Enjoy the rest of your day, Apple store'll be up in an hour or so.
Thank you - zsafwan 

8/16/32 GB models are $99/199/299 - available June 19
take that Pre! - John Hollandsworth
LOL... No way, John - Marcelo Baltar
Mark H
Clarification: 8GB model is the original iPhone 3G, not an iPhone 3GS
Chris H
Wow, $99 3G's are going to sell like crazy.
Good move ! - Jean-Francois Martin

Showing voice control - does much more than just dialing - iPod control looks great.
This is really handy for those of us that live in countries/states where car kits are mandatory - Mark H

Compass announced. App and API. Nice maps integration. Accessibility settings - voice over, zoom, white on black. Nike+ support.

Showing video editting / sharing. Nice dig at AT&T - if my carrier supports it I can send it via MMS

New camera comes with Api. Announcing video now. Switch in camera for 30 FPS VGA res
Addition of camera API is going to make ShopSavvy-like barcode scan apps a lot easier to create - Mark H
On device video editing now being reported - Mark H

Camera has tap to focus - also set proper exposure for spot. Better light sensitivity.
This follows the leaks we've previously seen on TAB, TUAW suggesting we may also see video support announced in a few moments. - Mark H
Just announced - Chris H

New camera is 3 mega pixel autofocus camera
The addition of autofocus should make photos a lot less blurry, potentially replacing a point and shoot for most consumers - Mark H

The S has a rounded square around it. OpenGL ES 2.0

If the rest of Gruber's predictions also hold true, we're going to see double the space, double the speed, same price.
I think the old iPhone 3G will stay available as the low end... - Jean-Francois Martin

S = Speed

Same design externally as 3G -- hard plastic back. Much faster -- 2x faster

Comparing app stores -- made fun of Palm's tiny 18 apps available for the pre.
Not fare... - Jean-Francois Martin

Talking about the iPhone 3G. Building....
One more thing... - Jean-Francois Martin
Not until some exciting statistics, Jean-Francois - Mark H
Yeah... this kind of a good WWDC: updated macbooks, safari 4 shipping, snow leopard ship date confirme at 29$ upgrade, iPhone OS available june 17. - Jean-Francois Martin
148Apps
iPhone OS 3.0 wrap-up. Free for iPhone customers. Original and 3G. $9.95 for iPod Touch users. Available worldwide June 17th!
now we have it ! - Jean-Francois Martin
Anyone want to bet the 17th is our iPhone 3 date? - Mark H
Here we go. - Chris H

GM seed of OS 3 for developers today.

Scott is done -- Phil comes back on stage.
And here's our moment of truth - Mark H

That leaves 15 minutes or so, which should be plenty of time for some kind of hardware revision be it iPhone or Apple TV... iPods are unlikely at WWDC.
or to a music show... - Marcelo Baltar
I wouldn't be surprised to see an iPhone no-show. - Chris H
That'd be disastrous for the stock - Mark H
I don't care about the stocks... - Jean-Francois Martin
Meh, it would only be temporary. - Chris H
People will still buy Macs regardless of when the iPhone comes out. - Chris H
You don't, but Apple do. I think not releasing an iPhone would be a bad move for stock, and suggest they felt they couldn't beat Palm. - Mark H
I would much rather see a carrier supported iPhone (AT&T), than a crap, half supported version. - Chris H
Remember the few technical hitches we have mean possibly over-running the two hours, also. So we may have longer to go than expected. - Mark H
That being said, I would really like to see the iPhone come out. - Chris H
Remember the US is a market for Apple, but it's not the only market, ROW trumps US in this instance. - Mark H
