AT&T clearing out old iPhone 3G stock, allowing early upgrades

AT&T clearing out old iPhone 3G stock, allowing early upgrades

This will please those hoping for a new iPhone release this summer.  It appears that AT&T is allowing customers who wouldn't normally be eligible for the subsidized pricing on the iPhone 3G to upgrade early.  The $199/$299 prices for the iPhones would normally only be available to either new customers, or current customers that have been on their contract long enough.  Now AT&T is letting customers get an iPhone before the normally required 18 month upgrade date.

This appears to be an attempt to move more iPhone 3G units and clear out the stock. This will encourage hopes of a new iPhone this summer, and this new policy would support the leaked rumors about an annual iPhone release. If there was a new iPhone being released this summer, it would definitely make sense to clear the old iPhone stock first.

This offer is only available to current subscribers, and only one iPhone per customer with this new offer.

It doesn't exactly match up to the deluge of AT&T devices announced earlier today, but Cricket Wireless and Motorola have unveiled their latest CDMA device, the Motorola Evoke QA4.  Looking a little like both the iPhone 3G and HTC's Touch, the QA4 has a 2.8-inch 240 x 400 touchscreen, slide-out numeric keypad and EVDO Rev.A.

There's also Bluetooth (with wireless stereo support), 256MB of internal storage and a microSD slot.  The Evoke QA4 has a full HTML browser that works in both landscape and portrait orientations; Motorola have fitted an accelerometer to switch between the two, and there's an on-screen QWERTY keyboard which can be called up in landscape orientation.
