Going to Vermont? Leave Your iPhone at Home

I have never used an ipod. I rarely use my cell phone (no reception in Arlington for the most part, only in Manchester). So this news isn’t a big deal in my eyes but . . .

There’s bad news for Vermonters who are on top of technology:

Vermonters won’t be able to take advantage of Apple’s iPhone because it will be offered by a wireless carrier that doesn’t maintain a network in the state.

The iPhone, which combines an iPod music player, cell phone and full-featured Internet browser, is due to go on sale in June, but only in areas served by AT&T’s Cingular Wireless. Apple has an exclusive distribution deal with AT&T’s Cingular Wireless. Link

At least we have running water, electricity, and toilets that flush.
