SPOTLIGHT: Apple adds juice to iPhone

Apple has updated its iPhone and iPod Touch lineup, doubling the memory and creating a new premium price for higher-end models. The newest iPhone features 16 Gigabytes of memory and sells for $499. The previously released 8 GB version of device costs $399. Both devices combined wireless cellular capabilities, wireless Internet service, with an iPod-like multimedia device. 

Meanwhile, Telephony Online reports Apple - and its exclusive carrier AT&T - continues to have a problem with the sale of "unlocked" iPhones. According to a recent earnings call, Apple has sold 3.7 million iPhone activations, whereas AT&T reports only 2 million. The 1.7 million discrepancy indicates at least 1 million iPhones were unlocked, a number accounting for as much as one quarter of the company's total iPhone sales to date. Report
