It was obvious something was "up" when the Apple Store went down.  Besides that, of course, Steve Jobs was making a keynote address at WWDC. So what happened?

Apple® today introduced the new iPhone™ 3G, combining all the
revolutionary features of iPhone with 3G networking that is twice as
fast* as the first generation iPhone, built-in GPS for expanded
location based mobile services, and iPhone 2.0 software which includes
support for Microsoft Exchange ActiveSync and runs the hundreds of
third party applications already built with the recently released
iPhone SDK. In the US the new iPhone 3G is priced at a stunning $199
for the 8GB model, and just $299 for the 16GB model.** iPhone 3G will
be available in more than 70 countries later this year, beginning with
customer availability in 22 countries—Australia, Austria, Belgium,
Canada, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Ireland, Italy,
Japan, Mexico, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Portugal, Spain,
Sweden, Switzerland, UK and the US—on July 11.

For those wondering, the software update for older iPhones has been pushed out to early July.  Most likely, we're talking the same 7/11 date as for the iPhone3G (note that Apple can't seem to make up it's mind.  Its store is up, but it calls the phone the iPhone3G AND the iPhone 3G).
