Does Apple want to break free from AT&T
It seems like there is more speculation about the agreement between AT&T and Apple. Based on the myriad of posts, blogs and articles it seems like the discussion is heating up.
Based on what I’ve read, the only true winner of the arrangement is AT&T–they’ve increased their profits, increased their customer base, and have upgraded their networks (does upgrading count as a plus for them?)
Apple on the other hand could gain more market share, more iTunes dollars, and more overall profit if they could support multiple carriers at once.
The comments made by Gene Munster imply that the AT&T/Apple agreement will be in place until 2011 or 2012.
There is speculation that the tablet will be able to use other providers–but that doesn’t help my dropped calls!
