Apple fans can look forward to AT&T exclusive iPhones until 2012, at the very least. An ongoing class action lawsuit against Apple and AT&T's exclusivity arrangement has turned up some interesting admissions from Apple. They have stated very clearly that their arrangement with AT&T (signed in 2007) has a 5 year shelf-life.

Don't get too bent out of shape. Engadget notes that the last few years have provided Apple with many changes to escape or re-negotiate their contract. AT&T's poor service may be a violation of the terms of their agreement. It is also possible that concessions were made by AT&T in order to secure the iPad contract.
