Sorry kids, but as it stands now, it doesn't look like there's going to be any new hardware announcements—i.e. no iPhone 5—at the 2011 Apple Worldwide Developer Conference

Apple announced dates for the conference this morning with a digital flier featuring the words: "Join us for a preview of the future of iOS and Mac OS X." Then Apple's SVP of Worldwide Product Marketing, Phil Schiller, came out and said, "At this year's conference we are going to unveil the future of IOS and Mac OS. If you are an iOS or Mac OS X software developer, this is the event that you do not want to miss." 

We don't know about you, but we—and every other tech publication—sees this as a clear sign that the WWDC will be all about software. Even though Apple has used the WWDC to announce iPhone updates in the past, it doesn't look like the same will happen this year. Sources are stating that the next iPhone won't ship until after September. 

So if you're waiting to cop a new iPhone, unless Steve Jobs pulls out one of his "One more things", you may be waiting for a good while longer.
