If I were in your shoes, I would check the inventory at the end of July to see what kind of selection of '09's are available, and play it by ear. If there are plenty to choose from in a color you want, there's probably no downside to waiting. Otherwise, you might have to decide in July whether you want an 09 or an 2010 model. It is possible they will all be gone by the end of August, especially as these are not normal economic times, and manufacturers are being very careful about inventories. 2010 colors are likely to be different.
Also, the prices are not likely to drop as much as they did on the 2008's, assuming the model changes are minimal. On the other hand, if they do add/fix something significant, you might be glad you waited.
