Silicon Alley Insider gets the story here. Walt says he has no actual knowledge of when the 3G iPhone will ship despite having mouthed off about it a couple days ago. Says Walt: “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?” Yeah. Because Walt is all about putting Journal readers first. So on the day that the 3G iPhone does finally ship, and Walt runs his review on that very same day, maybe someone should write to the Journal and ask him how long he’s been using that new iPhone and why he didn’t tell his Journal readers all about it the moment it arrived.
