Apple to launch App Store on Monday

Per the rumor mill, Apple is expected to open its long-awaited App Store at the beginning of the Worldwide Developers’ Conference next Monday. A source close to the story cited that the online store will launch and be up and running that day with Steve Jobs giving the keynote address at the event.

A Monday launch of the iTunes App Store would also imply an immediate release of the iPhone 2.0 Firmware which would be much earlier than expected.
