iPhone release on June 20th? [Updated]

A number of reader reports and a Google Groups message board posting indicate that CNBC is reporting that the iPhone will be released on the 20th of June.

Actually, On the Money last night on CNBC, the telco Analyst said they had been given the confirmed date of the 20th. Not sure where this official release is, but they specifically said iPhone release date was finally released and it was to be the 20th.

According to CNBC, the iPhone will be "in stores" on that date. Apple's iPhone had been officially targeted for "late June". iPhone sales/support training runs from May 30th - June 20th, giving more credibility to the June 20th date.
