They've been wanting to get the iphone for like the past year or two. Just AT&T had exclusive rights to it so they couldn't get it.

Interesting that this is coming direct from Bloomberg reporters... The last report where we learned about an order going out to Foxconn for CDMA phones, was from WSJ Blog post (I think). BB reporters wouldn't just throw out anything onto its newswire unless it had some cement behind it.

I AM biased on this because I work for Bloomberg...

Something I still don't get with all these rumors (which come around every year) is that if the exclusive five-year contract with AT&T and Apple started in 2007 (when the first iPhone was launched), wouldn't that mean that the contract holds until 2012?
