Apple-Cingular iPhone rumor

From ThinkSecret:

Apple and Cingular have signed an agreement that will make the US’ largest cell phone provider the exclusive carrier of Apple’s forthcoming phone, sources report. Apple’s iPhone remains on track for an early 2007 release.

As previously reported, Apple’s phone will feature a candy-bar design with a 2.2-inch display and 3 megapixel camera. Robust iTunes and iSync support will also be delivered with the phone.

If this comes to pass just as iTV is launched, some really cool things can be sold through iTunes with Cingular getting a cut. It’s the right way to go for Cingular. The Sprint and Verizon music stores are a flop – overpriced, and thus underused. Video’s been an even bigger bust. Does anyone know anyone who’s paid $5.99 to rent a movie from Sprint to be viewed on a phone and nowhere else?
