Analyst have estimated that Apple has already sold around 500,000 iPhones. Despite the higher Cingular (I refuse to call it AT&T) service plan, expensive batteries ($85 replacement battery), small storage size (compared to iPods), and the 55%+ profit margin that Apple is gobbling up, people are still lining up to get the iPhone.

Business Week reports heightened talks about a buyout or acquisition of Sprint. The company has never improved it's foothold since the $35 billion dollar buyout of Nextel (which, like AT&T's attempt to rebrand, I've stated was/is a horrible idea). The report stated that the company was in the middle of a turnaround, I would call it more of a downward spiral.

Mobile Phone Software
Why use our site instead of other "free" sites? No less than five major anti-virus software companies have now released products for mobile devices. With sales of mobile phones nearly 4 times the sales of computers in 2005, this is a market hackers, spammers, and virus writers will surely target with "free ringtones, screensavers, games, and applications". We've been providing spam, trojan, and virus-free phone downloads for over 3 years.
Think you're safe looking at questionable material on your phone? Netintelligence is launching a phone web filter, and a log parents can use to monitor children's video and picture viewing activity.
