17M iPhone 3G ordered, Rates, MMS Coming and Remote Application

Today’s news about the iPhone, starting with the rates: Rogers has announced plans in the $60-$115 (Canadian) range. In Sweden, plans will start at $50 and in Norway they’ll be as high as $80 (link).

Launch preparations: Apple as reportedly ordered 17M handsets, which is huge of course, but given the anticipation and the much lower price point, it’s likely that they will sell all that.

MMS support: For those who care, it’s rumored to be in the works.

Universal Remote Control: Not surprisingly, the idea of a display-only universal remote control makes sense: you can program any remote and mimic exactly its functionalities. There are people already working on applications, but I remember that Apple filed a patent a while back… That will give me a pretext to get an iPod touch and dump my current iPods. Not official yet
