AT&T tops 1 million inquiries for iPhones

ATT Million iPhone Inquiry

AT&T's cellular division has fielded over a million questions about the iPhone's availability, according to the company COO Randall Stephenson. The executive opened his keynote at the CTIA phone expo in Orlando by touting the sheer number of website visitors that had visited AT&T's special iPhone page and chosen to be contacted when the Apple device is ready to order.

"One million people have asked us to call when this phone is available," Stephenson said.

Notably, the wireless provider isn't currently accepting pre-orders for the device, making room for potentially stronger sales when the iPhone goes on sale in June. The news also contradicts analysts' reports, many of which have expressed concern that initial sales will fall short due to the $499 price and relatively miniscule smartphone market.

Apple itself has opted out of predicting early sales, estimating only that it will ship 10 million phones by 2008.

    executed?

    "The executed opened his keynote..." That seems a bit harsh for such good news...unless MacNN should have written "executive"?
