Cingular Exclusive on Apple iPhone?

Clandestine info about Apple's upcoming iPhone (see fake pic at right) keeps trickling in, and the latest assertion has Apple and Cingular teaming up to distribute the phone at first, with Cingular snagging exclusive rights to Apple's iPhone for its initial six months on the market. After that, other providers will also be joining the fun.

As the story goes, the candy bar phone with a 2.2-inch display, iTunes and 3-megapixel camera is still on track for an early 2007 release. Those in the know think Apple will sell 25 million iPhones next year. Those are some big numbers, considering that 50 million of the wildly popular Motorola RAZRs have sold since its release in late 2004.
