No Disk Mode for iPhone?

Unlike the iPod, iPod mini, nano, and shuffle, the iPhone lacks the ability to be used in Disk Mode, according to an article on Mac enthusiast site 9to5Mac, and therefore can only be synchronized with data using iTunes and associated helper applications such as iPhoto. The report, which the site attributes to a source at Apple, also claims that the iPhone includes support for tabbed web browsing, a VPN client for business users, and a vibration feature, but lacks an iChat application for instant messaging, at least in its current software revision. It also notes that the tested iPhone lacked a SIM card slot, which may have been attributable to the phone’s pre-production status. Apple representatives had no comment on the report.

They seem really questionable.
They have a link at the bottom of the article to another article about “Brushed Metal iMacs Dropping at WWDC.” They seem like they actually believe it, as well.

Also, Steve Jobs showed Safari using multiple pages, but not tabs.

Who is 9 to 5 Mac to post articles and claim them official?

Don’t believe it. Jobs showed the SIM card slot during his keynote. iLounge has a photo of it (about 3/4 down the page) in this article:

Actually, there are no photos of a SIM slot - only an arrow pointing to the back of the device.  It would seem that the SIM is inside the device and not “user replaceable” - like the battery…
