    IPHONE EXCLUSIVE TO AT&T FOR FIVE YEARS

    AT&T has exclusive U.S. distribution rights for five years — an eternity in the go-go cellphone world. And Apple is barred for that time from developing a version of the iPhone for CDMA wireless networks.

    A question that I would really like to to know the answer to is if this 5 year period of exclusivity is just for the iPhone that is coming out next month, or, does AT&T have a lock on anything iPhone like coming out of Apple until 2012, i.e., if Apple releases an iPhone Nano or an iShuffle or something, would it be exclusive to AT&T as well?
    If the iPhone is as hot a device as everyone thinks it is going to be AT&T has a great opportunity to nab customers from the other carriers because their period of exclusivity on the device that everyone wants is so long.
