Steve Jobs “expected” to appear at the iPhone unveiling tomorrow
Steven Paul Jobs, named CEO of the decade by MarketWatch, might have resigned as a chief executive from Apple, but he remains a chairman and is still expected to appear at the iPhone unveiling tomorrow, alongside current man in charge Tim Cook.

Reports about Jobs “expected” to appear on stage first surfaced on Reuters today, but at the same time the same report precautions that even if the iconic CEO doesn’t show up, it won’t be a huge disappointment. 

"Investors would like to see Steve Jobs to confirm that he is still involved, but we have dealt with the fact that he's not going to be as involved," Capitol Advisors Growth Fund manager Channing Smith said. "We'd love to see an appearance but it's not critical."

In August, Jobs announced he’s stepping down as CEO in an official letter published on Apple.com. Earlier, in March, the former Apple chief executive appeared to announce the iPad 2, despite being on a medical leave, so there are chances that he could be on stage tomorrow as well. Would this make a huge difference for you?

Yeah I know what you mean. I know Shepherd Jobs loves the iPhone & his iSheep but he really should rest. No one knows exactly his situation but he has been looking more & more frail. I just hope he is taking care of himself. To step down from Apple because of health concerns, it must be serious. I just don't want to see Jobs any worse than last time he stepped up on the stage!

let be real here .Once the prime ,vigor , razor hd are released they will only be hot for like a month. Then all the talk will be on the droid 4 ,Htc next big, Samsung galaxy 3 or something similar. But iphone 4/4s/5 will sell see daily coverage.There android world changes like the newspaper.Being a former android user. I was angry everytime I got what was the newest handset(every 3 months)something else was coming down the pipe with no future support for my previous phone.

Well I know an idiot when I see one macdee, you fit the description perfectly, you're not fanboy with a name like macdee, no, who would have guessed that and you talk about quality, you call two pieces of glass slapped together quality and the first time you drop it breaks where is the durability?

it will dissipate a bit after tommorows show, until the launch which it will pick up again for a few days, then it will be forgotten as you hear about nexus this nexus that as we start getting closer to the launch of ICS and the Galaxy Nexus and its generation's ahead tech and software compared to the i5.

expected, Steve Jobs just cant keep still. He will present and spit bulls**t about the iPhone, saying its 'revolutionary' and 'innovative'. The fact is, its not revolutionary nor innovative. But im not an iPhone hater. iPhone is a great phone but i cant stand apple and thier bulls**t marketing

A common fandroid tactic. Claiming they own an Apple device to try and pretend they're objective.

and btw, i am not biased to any OS. I think Android, iOS and Windows Phone are great OS to start off. But all three have thier disadvantages. It's up to the user which one they prefer. It's wrong to say Android users are dumb just cause they prefer it to iOS. Would you like if someone disses u cause u prefer iOS? Just a thought.

So, what you're saying is, if I see a guy that looks like Skeletor come up on stage, that it's not some kind of Haloween joke? It is October, after all...

To squash this whole debate about what phn., & what OS is better; I would like 2 direct all of your attn. 2 the article: Mobile Competition Pt. 1 & Pt. 2. That article will address a lot of what we r discussing. Chk it out, great article.
