In television advertisements that started airing yesterday, Apple has made it known to the world that the iPhone will start shipping on Friday, June 29th. Apple and AT&T/Cingular have said from the start that the iPhone would ship in June, and the 29th is the last possible release date that allows both firms to launch the device without Wall Street and rest of the industry crying « delay. »
AT&T and Apple will both be offering the iPhone in their retail locations at a cost of US$499 for the 4GB model and $599 for the 8GB model. Both prices assume a new 2 year AT&T contract or a 2 year renewal on an existing contract.
