UPDATE: Steve Ballmer expected to make an appearance during the WWDC keynote?
There's always something unexpected to be expected during any of Apple's WWDC keynotes, but the upcoming one happening in under two weeks may really surprise some die hard loyalists out there. According to Global Equities Research analyst, Trip Chowdhry, Microsoft's presence will be made known during the event where the next generation iPhone is set to be unveiled. It's being reported that there is going to be a 7 minute window that's blocked off for a presentation by Microsoft for Visual Studio 2010 which is their suite of development tools. Not just anyone will be manning the presentation for the Apple dominated event, but none other than Steve Ballmer is reported to be present during that presentation. Chowdhry goes on to contend that the new version of Visual Studio would enable developers to create native apps for the Mac OS, iPad, and iPhone. So it'll be interesting to see what Steve Ballmer will bring to the occasion, but if it's not going to be him, there would be a likely chance that Bob Muglia would be presenting seeing that he runs Microsoft's server and tools business.

*UPDATE*
Well that surely came quick, but Microsoft's own official Twitter account cleared up things right away after the firestorm of speculations that Steve Ballmer was going to attend WWDC. The Twitter post simply sums up everything perfectly.

Haven't you heard? Apple's new rivalries are with Adobe and Google - they're practically buddies with Microsoft these days ;-)
