Longer Wait for UK 3G iPhone?

Now I’m a confused little gadget lover.

I was all excited when I was informed that O2 was told to “be prepared for an announcement” next week which I obviously thought – iPhone v.2.0 launch!

Now Apple has said that there are no plans for a pressday in the UK next week.  What?

The usual thing is to have a live feed from the Jobster piped into a London venue for things like iPhone launches for instance.

So, is the 3G iPhone being launched but later in the UK?

Is it actually being launched at all?  Is Apple just playing things really close to their chest?

I’m trying my best to get to the bottom of this.
