Analyst says AT&T paying Apple $18 a month for each iPhone


This one's been floating around for a little while now but, in case you missed it, at least one analyst is claiming to have figured out the still undisclosed revenue-sharing agreement between AT&T and Apple and, if true, it's quite a doozy. According to Piper Jaffray's Gene Munster, over the two-year life of a user contract, AT&T is forking over a hefty $18 a month for each iPhone user which, as CNET points out, is an amount that exceeds the actual price of the iPhone. That's also a sizable jump over previous estimates of the revenue sharing agreement, which had first been pegged at just $3 per iPhone subscriber, or $11 for each iPhone customer new to AT&T. Of course, this is still all just speculation until AT&T or Apple decide to spill some details themselves, although we wouldn't count on that happening anytime soon.
