Just yesterday, Lance Ulanoff of PC Magazine wrote that Apple will never sell an unlocked iPhone because there isn’t a market for it, because “Apple isn’t stupid.”
Okay, maybe that’s a bit harsh, but how embarrassing is this, to have to retract/note/caveat such an article? I guess some people really didn’t see this coming. I don’t really care, one way or the other. Until I’m a full-time jet-setter, traveling around the world every week or month, I have no need for an unlocked iPhone. But it’s nice to know there’s that option if I ever need it.
I’m more interested in the next device that’s coming out this September. This article suggests that the new iPhone is entering the final stages of development and will go into production soon, but it does get a thing or two wrong (for example, Apple already announced over-the-air updates). Someone hasn’t been doing his homework!
