more iPhone

Because the launch is just around the corner, we're now beginning to see a trickle of insider info making it's way online. Here's some other tid-bits of other info to consider if you plan to buy one.

From mocoNews.net

Apple is intent on making iTunes indispensable beyond media sales and playback. In update emails Tuesday, Apple (full text) and AT&T warned prospective users the expensive phone they lust for won’t meet expectations without an iTunes account. Translation: without a credit card on record, don’t expect much. The application is required for syncing music and video—and, of course, you need it to get an account. True, most of the first-ins probably already have iTunes and are likely to have an iTunes account. (This takes Microsoft’s Passport/Windows Live ID one step further by linking access to a credit card. It would be the equivalent of requiring a Zune or Xbox Marketplace account before activating the abilities of Windows Mobile 6 on a smartphone.) This way, Apple can have a retail relationship outside of AT&T—a vital step, especially for a company for which control is as important as the product itself.
