Verizon iPhone: A matter of when not if
We know that many of you have been waiting avidly for some time for news of a Verizon iPhone and we were all expecting an announcement at the recent WWDC 2010. Alas although we heard the details of the newest iPhone, the iPhone 4, there was still no talk of an iPhone for Verizon, although we now hear that a Verizon executive says this is inevitable.
A couple of days ago we brought you the news that there is speculation that the next carrier to get the iPhone won’t in fact be Verizon, but will be T-Mobile (see story here). That pleased a lot of people but it’s still not a Verizon iPhone for customers loyal to them.
However it seems now that there is a little bit of good news for consumers wanting a Verizon iPhone. An article over on EWeek by Wayne Rash tells of an interview they had with Michael Maiorana, the Verizon president for the Washington, Baltimore and Virginia region at the National Press Club. Maiorana told E Week that the matter of a Verizon iPhone was a question of when, not if.
There was no further comment on exactly when it may be available as Maiorana said he didn’t want anything to dent sales for the Motorola Droid this summer. It could be that both T-Mobile and Verizon will be getting the iPhone which can only be good news for everyone.
For more on this go to eweek.com. Are you still holding on for a Verizon version of the iPhone 4 or are you tired of waiting and thinking of abandoning your carrier for AT&T to get an iPhone? Alternatively you may decide to get a Verizon Android phone? We’d be interested to hear what you think so please send us your comments.
