Not sure where both your tone and the use of that quote fits in with  
anything being said on this thread.

I must of missed where 'Nokia Employees' hinted at June next year.

I base my guess on a _beta_ SDK in practical feature freeze, an  
October summit with high levels of device information expectations,  
various community projects maturing on the Fremantle SDK and the fact  
that Nokia employees have been working on the new device for quite  
some time now.

Why would Nokia announce at OSiM last year a device that wouldn't be  
available for 20+ months later? It's not in their interests to have a  
device development in public that long. Also why would they effectivly  
freeze the new software a year before it is released? Doesn't make  
sense does it.
