WSJ: Apple signs with Cingular

fistfullast33l writes "Last night a blog post on Business 2.0's new blog pointed to a Wall Street Journal article (paid subscription required) reporting that Apple has apparently signed up with Cingular to provide the service for a new iPhone. If the WSJ story is true, more details should be given in today's Macworld Expo keynote by Steve Jobs. What's more interesting are the points that the blogger makes. From the article: "The first is that Verizon (VZ) Wireless and Sprint (S) are left out in the cold by this move, since Cingular uses GSM, a standard that's incompatible with Verizon and Sprint's CDMA technology. Verizon has the Chocolate and Sprint sells the Fusic music phone, but neither has proven to be an iPod substitute yet.""
