Gizmodo was in the room when AT&T CEO Ralph da la Vega spoke about the future release of the 3G iPhone, tangentially.
"Let me repeat what I said: I think that you're going to see our integrated devices be 3G devices in the not-too-distant future, and I mean months. That should be clear enough," said the CEO.
The comment came in response to question from a hack, which Giz summarized thusly:
He had mentioned earlier in the event that he expected all of their smart integrated devices to be 3G in the next couple months. Sascha Segan from PC Mag asked it that included the iPhone.
But this information, though seemingly sensational coming from an Apple partner and all, isn't particularly illuminating. We know that the 3G iPhone manufacturing contract has just been let and that Apple can't sell it without the FCC' blessing, which takes about 90 days anyway.
Editor's note: I imagine being associated with the iPhone is something like being related to a famous person—"What's up with the 3G iPhone? Huh? Oh, yeah, it's to nice see you, too. Anyway about the iPhone..."
