    AT&T may have fibbed regarding Sling player for iPhone

    The $99 iPhone Is James Bond. The Other $99 Phones Are Joe Schmoe.

    While it’s not being talked about too much, the $99 iPhone 3G is a very interesting play by Apple. It takes what was previously a just out-of-reach device for many, and puts it at a magical price-point. Sure, it still won’t sell everyone, like the people who only care about getting the phone that their carrier is offering for free, or those looking for the cheapest possible… Read More
