The magic date for iPhone – June 11
Yes, we waited for a long time just to see the new iPhone, Apple’s product that will revolutionize the world of mobile phones.
At the CTIA show this year people were talking very much about this gadget, and about the services of mobile phones.
Randall Stephenson, chief operating officer of AT&T, said:"The companies that make things simple and integrated; those are the companies that are going to win."
Stephenson said that by the end of 2007, there will be 3 billion wireless users – half the planet, essentially. "Our customers are now taking advantage of high-speed data networks," he said. "The use of wireless data in commercial applications has skyrocketed to $7.2 billion last year, from $600 million in 1996."
Waving an Apple iPhone, Stephenson demonstrated some finger movements with the touch-screen interface, claiming that it was the first time he actually tried one. "One million people have asked us to call them when this phone is available," he said.
AT&T will be the exclusive carrier for the iPhone upon its release in June, and for the foreseeable future as well, something that both Apple and AT&T have taken heat for in the press since the iPhone's announcement in January.
The Apple's Worldwide Developer Conference can be a great and a convenient place to present the new iPhone. The show will take place from June 11 through June 15. everybody are expecting the first date of the show to be the release date of the device. The June 11 launch date is still unofficial given that the information comes from a sales rep, but it sounds legit.
