    No they won't like the iPod Classic and iPod Nano (and colors in the iPod Shuffle).

    Wow a flurry of iPhone related developments over the past couple of days. Combine this AT&T screwup with the report MacRumors indicated yesterday, the darn thing could be released VERY SOON

    It is also showing accessories for iPhone Black, which could indicate this is not an AT&T mistake.

    Apple has finally woken up to the fact that there is a huge demand for unlocked phones.

    What better way to acknowledge the black market than a black iPhone!

    Remind me not to call you to do my detective work in the future. That doesn't make the back plastic.



    News-flash, what material in this?







    Exactly.

    Maybe AT&T slipped and let the name of the new iPhone slip out... "iPhone Black". Then after it was discovered, they quickly added "Black" to a couple other models to try to cover it up.

    Isn't the blurb at the bottom of the page far more interesting?
    "This line is eligible for equipment discount pricing when you sign up for a 2-year service agreement. You can also take advantage of our no-commitment pricing option."
    This would imply that the no-hardware-subsidy/contract-required scenario is being scrapped and that the business model is reverting to, as they say, business as usual. I might actually buy one of the things if I don't have to sign a contract with AT&T.

    Where would you go?



    From the Macworld article on Rim's announcement of their BOLD http://www.macworld.com/article/1334...berrybold.html



    "Carriers will determine pricing, and RIM had no details on which U.S. carrier will introduce the Bold (though AT&T, with the largest HSDPA network in the United States, seems a likelier candidate than T-Mobile, which has just begun to roll out 3G service stateside). RIM said that it expects the Bold to be shipping worldwide this summer."



    Are they implying that other carriers have no or minimal 3G service?

    I know, I don't see why Apple would ever go back to plastic when they've made it quite clear that metal + glass are the way they are moving.



    I also don't think that AT&T mentioning iphone black to be as massive a cock-up as people suggest. What information was really leaked here? That there's a new iphone coming and it's black. Wow, I mean who saw that one coming? Now the excitement's all over, AT&T have spoiled the surprise.



    For all you know, the new iphone might be coming out today. It is Tuesday after all.



    iphone stocks are dry - the longer Apple wait to restock inventory, the more they and AT&T lose potential sales to rival carriers/phone models. They need to get the new one out ASAP.

    Looks like AT&T took down the Black option.



    No More iPhone Black
