Apple Delays Leopard Until October. Will the iPhone be delayed as well?

Apple announced on Thursday they will be delaying the release of Leopard (the next version of Mac OS X) until October. The original release date for Leopard was June.

Apparently this delay relates to the iPhone release:

“We can’t wait until customers get their hands (and fingers) on it and experience what a revolutionary and magical product it is… However, iPhone contains the most sophisticated software ever shipped on a mobile device, and finishing it on time has not come without a price — we had to borrow some key software engineering and QA resources from our Mac OS X team, and as a result we will not be able to release Leopard at our Worldwide Developers Conference in early June as planned.”

I still do not get this. Why announcing the iPhone so early without having the product release tied with it? and now saying that it is “the most sophisticated software ever shipped on a mobile device”? Does that hints the iPhone will be delayed as well?
