Imagine a world where the iPhone wasn't restricted to the tragedy that is AT&T... Imagine no plan cancelations, no 2 year contracts, and no inferior cell phone providers... That my friend is truly a desired world. Why do you think Apple made AT&T the exclusive carrier of the iPhone? If you're thinking "Because they get a hefty sum from AT&T in return" well. my friends, you'd be absolutely correct. But still was it worth it? Or do you think Steve Jobs still has nightmares about the moment he made that decision? Yes I'm sure the amount of retribution from AT&T is quite substantial, but I still can't imagine that this would outweight the effects of making the iPhone available to all. Apple has sold over 1 million iPhones... in under 3 months!! Try to comprehend the number sold if no plan was required. Over 2 million for sure, with 3 million just on the horizon. Jobs might not have even needed to make the price drop, at least not until closer to the holiday season. iPhones are sold for way more than they cost to make. With these kinds of substantial gross profit per iPhone just imagine the marginal profit that would have been accrued. That's not even taking into account the increase in consumer base. "Hey, if an OS is this good on a phone imagine on a computer..." AT&T is the number one complaint about the iPhone... and there is nothing Steve can do about it... at least not for a few years. So what do you think? Do you think Apple should have not gone exclusive with AT&T? I probably would have bought one. Would you?
