During a JP Morgan conference with analysts this morning, AT&T's Wireless CEO, Ralph de la Vega, was quoted as saying, "I'm addicted to the iPad."
He went on to say that the iPad has, "changed the way I work" and that he was recently able to get through all of his email on a flight that included in-flight Wi-Fi service.
Business Insider reports on the conference that Vega was attending. According to their report, Vega was talking about how iPhone customers on AT&T won't make the switch to another carrier when the exclusivity between AT&T and Apple ends.
He gave the following reasons of why users won't switch:
- 70% of AT&T's customers are on family plans, which can be a hassle to move everyone over to a new carrier
- 40% of customers are on corporate discount plans
The CEO didn't give any additional information about the exclusivity deal, like dates. It looks like we will just have to wait and see if his predictions about the deal comes true.
