Industry, iPhone, Mobile

There has been much speculation about Microsoft possibly appearing at Apple’s WWDC event coming on June 7th. Microsoft has commented on the event and debunked any kind of wild rumors that were looming this past week.

A report released this past Wednesday claimed that Steve Jobs was going to share the stage with Microsoft’s CEO Steve Ballmer. The speculated surprise appearance by Ballmer would be to announce that iPhone and iPad apps could be developed using Visual Studio 2010 with Windows.

Thursday, however, Microsoft released a statement on their twitter page that read: “Steve Ballmer not speaking at Apple Dev Conf. Nor appearing on Dancing with the Stars. Nor riding in the Belmont. Just FYI.”

According to Mobile Marketing Watch, this news corresponds with Apple overtaking Microsoft in market cap effectively making it the largest tech company in the world.

If you remember correctly, Steve Jobs is expected to reveal the fourth generation iPhone on Monday June 7th. We’ll be sure to have the most up-to-date news concerning this exciting new device.
