okay, I don't know much about this 5 year contract thing with AT&T and apple. What I've put together about it is that apple can't dispribute the iphone to any phone company other than AT&T for 5 years. That is they just came out with a new line of phones[/phones], they would have to be called the iPhone, they could tweak the name and call it the iPhone slide or the iPhone qwerty ( if they made it have a full slide out qwerty keyboard). They could still develope the original iPhone for AT&T, but they could hve is verizon/sprint users (look at my user name) an apple phone too. They could even call it the iPod Phone. So what do you guys think?
