Apple CEO Steve Jobs to open WWDC with keynote address

Updated

Apple has announced that CEO Steve Jobs will open the 2010 Worldwide Developers Conference with a keynote address on Monday, June 7 at 10:00 a.m. Held at Moscone West in San Francisco, CA, the event offers developers sessions focusing on both Mac OS X and iPhone OS, as well as web app development; this year’s sessions are skewed heavily toward iPhone OS development, and the event sold out in a record eight days, with more than 5,000 developers registered. In past years, Apple has used the keynote address at WWDC as a venue for iPhone-related announcements, revealing the launch date for the original iPhone in 2007, introducing the iPhone 3G at the 2008 event, and unveiling the iPhone 3GS in 2009. Notably, a Mac Rumors reader emailed Jobs late last week following a number of announcements from Google relating to its iPhone-rival Android OS, saying that he hoped Apple has “some good WWDC announcements to blow them out of the water,” to which Jobs replied, “[y]ou won’t be disappointed.”
