You don't have to be a genius to guess that Apple is readying a new model of iPhone for late spring or early summer.

Adding more fuel to the fire now is a report that suggests AT&T is also prepping for a June iPhone launch. The blog Boy Genius Report says it has "confirmed with multiple AT&T sources that the carrier has now put a block on employees taking vacations in June."
The vacation ban for the carrier's employees leading up to an iPhone launch hasin 2007 and 2008.
AT&T had no comment on the report.
