iPhone pricing and avaliability 

4Gb model $499 expected to ship in June in the US in partnership with Cingular (exclusively). Q4 for Europe.

The reasoning given for the exclusivity is that the visual voicemail needs work from the service provider. It remains to be seen how this will impact on sales and how soon it will be before unlocked iPhones become available on the grey market

It wasn't made clear what length contract will be demanded by Cingular during the "multi-year" exclusivity period.

From today Apple is dropping the "Computer" from Apple Computer Inc.
