AT&T To Require Unlimited Data Package For Apple iPhone

May 29, 2007

“According to Lurie, one of the winning points for AT&T in regards to iPhone sales is that AT&T will be requiring iPhone owners to subscribe to an unlimited data plan. Lurie offered no indication, however, on how much the unlimited iPhone data plan would cost. Depending on the device, current Cingular/AT&T Wireless unlimited data plans range from $29.99 to $79.99.

iPhone: AT&T Exclusive For Five Years

May 23, 2007

“Apple’s iPhone is arguably this year’s most hotly anticipated consumer devices.

Fake Email Costs Apple $4 Billion In Market Capitalization

“What a day for Apple investors. The stock started off strong today on a lot of pre-market buying, despite news that Amazon will finally start competing on sales of DRM-free music. Then, whoops, at 11:49 AM EST Engadget posted saying that the iPhone and Leopard operating system launches would be seriously delayed. They based the story on an internal Apple email that was forwarded to them.”

Apple’s stock promptly tanked on massive selling, going from $107.89 to $103.42 in six minutes (11:56 – 12:02). This wiped just over $4 billion off of Apple’s market capitalization. A lot of people lost a lot of money very quickly.

Well, it turns out that the email was a hoax.”
