Those French Mobile Operators….they love to talk.  The latest information escaping their lips, according to French Magazine Challenges.fr (via TiPB), is that the iPhone 4G* is coming in early May, not the typical June-July timeframe that we are used to.   The magazine cites “several industry sources” but couldn’t offer any details on the 4G iPhone.  They also speculate that the reason for an early launch would be to counter Google’s rush of higher specced smart super phones with the Android OS.

They also mention that Microsoft could be a competitor as well, though we heard today that Windows Mobile 7 might not come until 2011 – which might as well be 3011.
