SAI: Walt Mossberg has no clue when the iPhone 3G will ship


Talk about your offhand comments getting scrutinized for every nuance of meaning. In a chat with Silicon Alley Insider, our dear Uncle Walt expresses his bemusement that a casual remark in Finland has echoed around the blogosphere so vigorously.

As we noted along with plenty of other sites, Walt's "the iPhone will be 3G in 60 days" statement seemed quite loaded with certainty -- and he'd be in at least some sort of position to know before the rest of us -- but as it turns out, Walt was basing his estimated date off of the same rumors and other remarks that we've all heard already.

It's back to reading tea leaves and the entrails of birds for us prognosticators, I guess.

Thanks, Dan.
