This almost counts as alarming … when AT&T COO Randall L. Stephenson held up an Apple iPhone, due to be distributed this June with Cingular AT&T as the exclusive carrier, he joked that it would be a test of the user interface because it was the first time he’s held one. That’s right — three months after the public disclosure of the relationship with Apple and three months away from what is already the carrier’s most intensely covered product launch, the COO of the parent company is just holding one for the first time. Perhaps as telling, he didn’t actually demo the phone; the brief look at what iPhone can do was canned video.
— Stephenson said one million people have asked to be notified about the phone. That’s not sales, mind you, but indications of interest.
