Apple Delivers iPhone

Replying to: why no cdma by disland
This is a marketing issue, not a technology one. Cingular marketing is making all the right moves (First Blackjack, First Blackberry pearl, Exclusive on the Nokia E series........). Exclusives are pretty commonplace -- Sprint and Verizon have taken turns on who has gotten the latest/greatest Treo the last few years.
However this is a multi-year agreement, and I doubt if Cingular is subsidizing the price of the handsets *and* Apple fans tend to pay sticker no matter what. Don't count on these ever being cheaper until Apple releases iPhone 2.
