Rumor Mill: A Less Expensive iPhone on the Way?

Posted by Lolita Beckwith Categories: Apple, Cell Phones, Rumors

iPhone Mockup

So we’re already obsessed with the (which comes out next Friday, June 29 @ 6pm), despite the fact we can’t afford one…yet. Se we love this rumor that Apple is—according to “market sources”—prepping a lower cost, 2nd generation iPhone for future release. No word on what features will or won’t be included (but we really hope the YouTube app remains). It all makes complete sense to us, as the $500-$600 USD price tag for the iPhone is undoubtedly overpriced for many, and we’re sure would like the iPhone to enjoy world domination-status like the iPod. So don’t be surprised if you start seeing 2nd and 3rd gen iPhones (and lower-priced 1st gens) in the years to come. Please note that the photo above is purely a mockup.

Are You Ready for iPhone Mania?

Posted by Lolita Beckwith Categories: Apple, Cell Phones, Rumors

iphoneIf you’re still deciding whether to get ‘s when it debuts on June 29, you should make that decision soon. It seems demand will be incredibly high for the gadget—but supply will be comparatively low. The iPhone will only be sold at approximately 2000 AT&T locations and almost all Apple stores in the U.S., as well as their respective websites (there will be no online pre-orders). Sales reps are speculating the stores will receive a small amount of iPhones, possibly as few as 40, prompting rumors that Apple is deliberately creating a shortage too keep demand high. Stores are expecting huge crowds on the 29th, and word has it people have already started camping out to be amongst the first on line. After
seeing the commercials for the iPhone, we’re frothing at the mouth for one, until we remember the

insanely high

prices: $500 USD (4GB) and $600 USD (8GB).

AT&T Releases Option 3G HSDPA 3.6 ExpressCard, Gives Details on Sierra Wireless 875U

 AT&T GT Max 3.6 Express HSDPA ExpressCard

AT&T has just launched their new Option GT Max 3.6 Express mobile broadband . We have been waiting for something like this to come down the Cingular/AT&T pike for quite a while now, especially since Verizon has been rocking a 3G card in the V640 ExpressCard since late last year. Still, better late than never, right?  The Option GT MAx 3.6 Express is being touted by AT&T as a Windows-only device, despite the fact that Option has released Mac drivers for the card. Details about the Sierra Wireless 875U USB HSDPA modem were also released, and that too is showing as being Windows only, despite Mac drivers being available. Our guess? AT&T just won’t help you troubleshoot issues in OS X, but we think it will work just fine.

You can pick up the GT Max 3.6 Express now for $49.99 with two-year contract after $100 rebate, while the Sierra Wireless 875U price is being left in the dark for now. At least we know what will be available in May.

Cingular Customers: Get Ready For Another Name Change

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Cell Phones, Corporate News

CingularOn Friday, the FCC finally approved the merger between BellSouth and the company formerly known as SBC, now known as AT&T. As soon as AT&T got word of the green light, they released information on how the merger will affect both companies following the merger. Long story short, Cingular is going to be rebranded as AT&T early this year. While it would seem the obvious choice, AT&T Wireless will likely not be the name given to the service. Customer will be able to keep their current phones and plans, and if you live in what is currently an AT&T landline service area, you may even get bundled discounts out of the deal.
