As I said Friday, I was hoping that Gruber was only joking and that some other sites, including The Verge, that were reposting his comments as fact, would be burned by jumping the gun. Well, it looks like the jumped the gun. On Gruber's podcast, The Talk Show, he confirmed Tuesday that he was joking around and everyone just took him too seriously. He did go on to speculate that he still thinks the device is coming this year and will likely be announced at either the iPhone even in September or the iPad event in October, and that he thinks it would be more logical to announce it alongside the iPhone. But, he was very clear that he has no knowledge of the announcement and did not slyly reveal it on Friday.
