I for one will actually be keeping my 1st gen. iPhone.
AT&T and Apple's new policy: When you buy an iPhone you MUST activate it in store; no simply buying an iPhone and walking out with it...meaning, all 3G iPhones sold in the US will be activated with AT&T.
This means someone who wants to use an iPhone with an alternate provider would be foolish to buy a 3G iPhone, activate it, and then cancel their service just to activate it again with Verizon or something.
I'm hoping my 1st gen iPhone becomes a hot product as a result and I can sell it completely jailbroken for good money.
AT&T's taking the hit on the price decrease for the device why shouldn't they make up the cost in service contracts and forcing activation so no less people can make a buck selling the new hot phone on ebay
So how does Apple come with the the '2x as fast, half the price' if the prices seem to be fairly consistant between new gen and last gen? The phone's HW pricing getting slightly cut doesn't seem like its "half the price"
Also I woudl like to see an article about the efficiency factor (more to see why its 2x as fast i guess)
