Apple (AAPL) mailed out invitations on Thursday for its 2009 World Wide Developers Conference (WWDC) — the premier event for anyone working on software for the Mac, iPhone or iPod touch.
It’s scheduled for June 8 – 12 in San Francisco’s Moscone Center — neatly filling the mysterious “Corporate Meeting” slot reserved for those days on the Moscone Center site — and it promises to be a big one.
Among the events Apple watchers have been anticipating for WWDC 2009:
- The release of OS X Snow Leopard, the latest major update of the Macintosh operating system (see here)
- A first look at the next iPhone, widely expected to be released in late June or early July (link)
- The return of Steve Jobs, whose medical leave is scheduled to end in June (see here)
The e-mail from Apple mentions none of those things, however. Instead, it reads as follows:
Tickets for last year’s WWDC, it reminds developers, were sold out. They will sell for $1,295 through April 24th, after which Apple plans to raise the price by $300. For more details, click here.
