Rumors: iPhone 4S in June? Cheap Amazon Tablets? Zynga IPO?

By Jeff Somogyi, dealnews writer

Here are a few of the rumors we found crawling under the rocks of the Internet, this week:

  • Amazon's tablets will be "reasonably priced"?
    According to MSNBC, the 7" version will cost $349 and the 10" will run you $449. Totaly "reasonable," when compared to, say, my monthly grocery bill, or rent, or other essentials.
  • iPhone 4S will be announced in June?
    Previous rumors said there was to be no new phone until later in the year. So, one of these is the lie! This is the kind of cross-information that made Nomad explode. (Via ElectricPig)
  • iPhone 3GS will not get iOS 5?
    CNET says that when the new iOS is announced (probably in June at WWDC), it'll also be announced that the new OS won't be finding its way to the older handsets. But, hey, it's not like anyone would still have those things, right? Having one is like using a white iPhone after labor day — tacky!
  • Apple Store moving into Grand Central?
    It'll take over the space currently run by Charlie Palmer's Metrazur, CNET claims, and Apple'll have to pay the restaurant to leave, too. Well, as a New Yorker, I think it's way better than having a Michael Jordan Steakhouse in there. (For the rest of the world: Yes, New Yorkers do have opinions on what goes into our train stations. Silly, isn't it?)
  • Zynga filing an for IPO?
    According to Bizmology, the maker of the wildly-popular FarmVille wants to go public. It will spam your Facebook newsfeed with updates about every stock share that's traded.
  • iPhone 5 will have a curved glass display?
    So Apple Insider claims this based on the fact that Apple has purchased about 200 to 300 glass cutting machines. Could be, or maybe it's just that Steve Jobs has joined The Fraternity and learned from the Loom of Fate how to curve glass?
