It looks like AT&T is the high bidder to RIM on the last few new Blackerrys. I hate to think how much was paid for the iPhone exclusive!
Iphone was first offered to vz, which was declined over a year ago, I do think mac pays att, not att to mac to carry the phone since all support etc is handled by mac even activation is done by itunes to mac.
