Apple may release an Unlock for iPhone?
The recent update is a a very bold statement from IPSF.
If they come through with the goods - I think we will all be bowled over.
If they fail to deliver a product that is 'immune' from future updates, then it will be a failure.
HAVING SAID THAT....I personally believe that Apple will shine through on this and release an unlock option in conjunction with AT&T. This is the only way forward.
In the same way as BootCamp was released - Apple will release the option (for a fee of course).
As the potential earnings of an unlock could offset the loss by AT&T, or at least soften the blow, they have no alternative.
For a breakthrough device such as the iPhone, do you really think Apple would want a bunch of hackers taking market share ?
Consider everything to date as beta testing. Boith in terms of technology and customer feedback.
The unlock is overdue - Apple will step in to prevent its name being dragged through the mud. And if AT&T dont like it ? Apple will sign a new contract with someone else.
Dont flame me ! But instead consider the bigger picture.
