Update: The iPhoneBlog is saying they got the same email and they spoke to the developer who said it was a mistake.

Rick Broida, writer of the Cheapskate blog over at CNET, has some slightly off topic news for us today.  Seems he’s been in contact with a “prominant application developer” who has gotten the iPhone 4.0 SDK and has actually updated their application to run with it.

“Just wanted to give you a heads up that we’ve submitted an updated app for the new iPhone OS 4.0 software.”

There has been some speculation that the iPhone 4.0 OS (or any updates to 3.x) has been held up because the code has numerous references to the tablet.  It would make sense, then, that if there is a tablet released later this month, Apple would be free to release at least a beta of the 4.0 iPhone software, to give developers a head start in getting their code ready for the update.

All of this excitement is reportedly only 12 days away.  Yet we haven’t heard a peep from Apple.  This certainly will be interesting.
