AT&T wants to keep the iPhone exclusive

AT&T wants to keep the iPhone
So far, AT&T has exclusively offered the iPhone, but The Wall Street Journal informs that the carrier’s precious partnership with Apple is going to end soon – in 2010. However, considering the great amount of revenue that the milestone device has accumulated for AT&T, it is hard to imagine the company would not wish to keep it for a little longer. In relation to this, it seems that AT&T CEO, Randall Stephenson, is now in discussions with the Cupertino manufacturer, in order to settle an extension for the exclusive offering of the iPhone until 2011. Official statements are lacking for the moment, with only an Apple spokeswoman saying: “We have a great relationship with AT&T”. So, what do you think? Will AT&T manage to snatch the iPhone from the others for another year, or maybe nothing is over yet?
