More iPhone usage details emerge June 14, 2007

According to the email circulated by Apple last night to US customers who have requested information on the soon-to-be-released iPhone, buyers would need to have an iTunes Store account in order to configure the phone – something a lot of casual customers might not have even considered having in the first place. This underscores the enormity of the required buy-in customers will have to get into if they do become users of the iPhone (and reveals Apple’s ultimate agenda as well), and also puts a damper on the instant gratification most buyers might assume they’d have when they take the unit home on June 29.

The email additionally says that contacts can be imported from existing popular applications, including OS X’s Address Book, Microsoft Outlook and Yahoo Address Book, and calendar entries from iCal or Entourage, aside from being able to enter the information manually. As for AT&T/Cingular‘s service fees, experts estimate a minimum charge of US$80/month if availing of all voice and data services, totalling nearly US$2000 over the two-year lock-in period that may or may not be required.

This is a compliment coming from you, my man. Thanks. I often don’t have time to post on this, much less anything else (yes, I know you feel I’m neglecting our PWiT, but that site is in good hands), but I do what I can when I can. Thanks, Gar.
