Rose says iPhone will launch on all providers

Kevin Rose, co-founder of Digg this week confirmed Apple's upcoming iPhone. Although much of it has been confirmed already over at Foxconn earlier last month, Rose confirmed some technical details, some were previously known and some new. According to Rose, the iPhone will:
  • Launch in January from all providers, both in CDMA and GSM models
  • Very small form factor
  • Have a two battery design. One battery for music playback and one for communications
  • 4GB or 8GB models to be introduced
  • Be a slider
  • Possibly a touch screen (not confirmed)
One of Rose's interesting details is the fact that the iPhone may launch from all providers. DailyTech previously reported that Apple had signed a contract with Cingular Wireless for the iPhone launch, making it an exclusive item although other providers were not confirmed for later release. Many users seemed to be thrown off from the iPhone being a Cingular-only product and perhaps Apple has since changed its launch program.

The two battery design is also a unique allowing the iPhone to use two different reserves for various functions. Comminucation time can be maintained all while a user can enjoy his or her music collection for extended hours.

Although no details of what models will be released, Rose says a 4GB and 8GB model will be released for $249 and $449 respectively. No official launch date has yet been announced.
