Macworld 2007: Apple and Cingular Wireless to team up for 'iPhone'

Share

Unnamed sources cited by The Wall Street Journal are convinced that Apple will team up with the US wireless operator Cingular Wireless to provide the much rumoured ‘iPhone’. They also think it likely that Apple will release an unlocked phone that can be used on any network.

Whilst this is US-centric news, and we know that North America nearly always gets hold of the latest technology first, an unlocked UK version could be good news, allowing users to choose their network provider by simply purchasing (or transferring) a SIM card.

We’ll all find out if the phone is coming to Macworld or not in a little over 6 hours’ time.
