Cingular sets date for iPhone Cingular Wireless, which is being re-branded as AT&T, recently set a date for the release of Apple Computer Inc.'s much anticipated iPhone. The product will be released on 11th June, the carrier has confirmed. The date coincides with the start of Apple's Worldwide Developers Conference, which is set to be held in San Francisco.
There is also an ongoing debate on what network will carry the iPhone in Europe. Most bets haver been placed on Vodafone so far and industry insiders claim it is going that way. In the U.S., AT&T recently announced that it received over 1 million queries about the iPhone from eager consumers through a website set up to allow consumers to register interest.

Apple has said that it could possibly sell 10 million iPhones. The company has run in to some disputes since the gadget's MacWorld debut, including one with Cisco Systems over the use of the "iPhone" brand, used by Cisco subsidiary Linksys. Apple and Cisco came to an agreement allowing each to use the brand.

Just a little note... 'Apple Computer Inc.' is no more... It has been re-branded as simply 'Apple Inc.' not that long ago.

I'd love to get one. Wonder what the pricing structure will be.

I am curious why Cingular is rebranding to AT&T.

AT&T sounds like garbage, to me. Cingular Wireless sounds good.

AT&T doesn't sound like anything. Sounds like the old land-line phone company.
