    Hot Phone Market?

    Do you think Apple is betting on it? The Phone market is a ripe apple for IPM. Read on

    "Burlingame, Calif. - The iPhone is drinking up all of Apple's juice. That's the company's excuse, at least, for the reason it is delaying the release of Leopard, its long-awaited new operating system.

    The company had planned to introduce the new software at its World Wide Developers' Conference on June 11; it will replace Tiger, the operating system Apple (nasdaq: AAPL - news - people ) has used since April 2005. But "we had to borrow some key software engineering and [quality assurance] resources from our Mac OS team," the company said in a press release Thursday afternoon.

    Apple said that instead of presenting a finished version at the conference, it would hand out a test version, and mail the final product out in October. "Life often presents trade-offs," the company said. "And in this case we're sure we've made the right one."

    The iPhone, meanwhile, is still on track to go on sale in late June, the company said. What, then, will Apple Chief Executive Steve Jobs surprise developers with at the conference? The iPhone, a product aimed squarely at consumers, is unlikely to get the full splashy keynote treatment at an event geared toward software developers."
