Apple and AT&T love affair continues
If you’re a phone subscriber to a mobile carrier other than AT&T and hope to get your hands on an iPhone 3G sometime this year or the next, happy waiting. Apple and AT&T’s exclusivity deal is said to continue until at least 2010 according to various sources. Part of the extended time in this deal is due to AT&T having agreed to dole out large scale subsidies for the iPhone 3G’s pricing, helping the company convert customers from other networks (in a nutshell, impatient people who have fallen head over heels in love with the iPhone 3G). Well, good things always come to those who wait, so quit whining if you ain’t rocking with AT&T.
