That may be an exaggeration. Randall Stephenson, current COO and heir-apparent to the throne of AT&T, actually said:
“I don’t know what your expectations are for the iPhone, but they’re probably too low,” he said during the Lehman Brothers analyst conference Wednesday.
I’ll admit it, my expectations of the iPhone are pretty low, but when he goes on to say that it will be a “game changer” for their wireless arm, it can’t really be denied that sales are going to be good for this thing. Forecasts have been good, and c’mon – it’s Apple. They’re an established brand that’s built a lot of hype around its product, and AT&T is totally going to be cashing in on its three months of exclusivity.
