Some of you are mis-reading the article. Just because AT&T loses "iPhone exclusivity" does not mean that it will no longer carry it. It just means that there will be more options for people who want a different network. Just because you get 3G in your metropolitan city doesn't mean everyone else does. I don't see anything bad out of this. More competition usually results in gains for the customer. If you want to stay then stay - no one is forcing you to jump. There will just be more options.If I helped you out, please use the Thanks button ------------------------->

Has Apple created a strictly CDMA iPhone for any other carrier world wide? I know of CDMA carriers creating a GSM network so they can offer the iPhone but has Apple created an iPhone strictly for CDMA?
It is very possible that the "tablet" will be subsidized possibly by Verizon on their network but everyone hoping an iPhone will make an appearance on that network is just wishing for false hopes.
Once Verizon gets LTE underway (and I mean available everywhere and not just 20 markets possibly by years end) then your hopes might be realized. Until then I don't see it happening Wednesday. Also I've heard more that the exclusive ATT contract ends in 2011, not this year. I will eat crow if I am wrong, but I doubt I am."To unpathed waters, undreamed shores." -- William Shakespeare

Does this mean the iPhone will be released with Verizon on the 26th or 27th???

I hope they carrier independent with support for tmobile/att/verizon. That would make them more money.

if this tablet is a device that requires 2 year agreement for internet use then I will not pay for a overpriced unsubsidized tablet on ebay or be signing up for 2 years just to own the tablet. However, if its a wifi ONLY device at a $600-1000 price tag then I am in. Theoretically, the iphone is on 2 networks in the US ATT and Tmobile.

^ +1...I'm on T-Mobile already with my 3GS and I really hope t-Mobile finally gets some iPhone action. Not being able to use the 3G speed I'm already paying for (essentially) blows! Bring it!

I would find it hilarious if they offered an iPhone, but restricted the built-in features like they did on all of their Win-Mo devices.
GPS-less or something. That would be epic.

if AT&T's exclusivity ends this year, the iphone will not be put into an exclusive contract with another carrier. that would be suicide for AT&T[they would not allow that]. all but a handfull of AT&T iphone users would be left. everyone would jump ship. if anything changes here, its going to be just another carrier along with AT&T that will offer the iphone. so everybody just take a breather. for all of us that like AT&t, itll still be here [including the 4G] for all of you who want change, it looks likely that Verizon will carry as well...killall Terminal

I think that Carrier Exclusivity for any phone is LAME!!!! You mean I have to switch to XXX just to get that F@#$n Phone?????
I would still be on Sprint if they had the iPhone. And I would pay less per month with better coverage
I would like to see Sprint to get the iPhone, and not Verizon, and have Verizon users leave Verizon! My Old roommate sells Verizon. He tries to talk me to getting Verizon... Then I go to his house, and he talks on his droid, and drops his call, and I have a awesome signal on my iphone 3gs. I just laugh at him.
