Apple is reportedly ending its iPhone exclusivity deal with AT&T this week. The rumored move may happen at the creative event in which Apple will most likely unveil its tablet computer. While AT&T may lose its exclusive deal, its yet to have been determined which networks the iPhone may be available on.

In other Apple news, the company may soon be rolling out a solar powered iPod. According to a recently published patent, the green iPod could be powered by both electricity and solar power.
