Despite five pounds of turkey, and half a dozen slices of pie, Russell proves that you can do creative thinking when comatose. He makes a great argument why the world will soon be blessed with an IPhone.

I think it would be interesting to see who they go with, if and when they develop a phone. Right now it is all speculative. I have a feeling a GSM service would make sense, because you can buy the phone from Apple, and then simply slide in your GSM SIM card. Sprint and Verizon could be a bit difficult etc.

Business development and the wrath of telecom

My question is what carrier would they be selling service with. Pretty much gone are the days of building and selling phones separate from services. Because of both the need for risk mitigation (guaranteed volume sales) and technology dependencies — most phones are purpose built for specific carriers selling to specific customers.

I think the Apple thing could be very convicing if someone like T-Mobile sold it to work off it’s Wi-Fi service. But that’s a different direction than the author rightly suggests.
