AT&T on iPhone launch
AT&T CEO Stan Sigman has described Apple's forthcoming iPhone as "the largest commercial product launch in the history of electronics" during a graduation speech at the West Texas A&M University. "This is you. AT&T and Apple will release the iPhone," Sigman said. "Since we announced this product earlier this year, over a million people have written in to express interest in being first to get one." The executive went on to announce that the first pre-released iPhone in the state of texas was given to the president of WDAMU. The president proudly held up the sleek device for all the crowed to see, and Sigman offered students a unique memory to take with them in future travels.
"I want you to be the first to see actual iPhone," AT&T's boss continued. "You don't have to remember another word I say. If someone asks you about graduation, your graduation, you can say that you got to see the iPhone."
