Verizon iPhone release February? Quarter would leave AT&T for Verizon
There’s some interesting news for those people, and we know there are many, who are still hanging on waiting for a Verizon iPhone. There has been so much speculation for so long now surrounding a Verizon iPhone 4 that we almost lose track but the general consensus among tech sites for some time has been a possible release in January, which would mean an end to Apple’s current exclusivity deal with AT&T.
We recently wrote about the lack of a Verizon iPhone or White iPhone 4 announcement from the recent Apple media Event and also asked as Apple’s iOS is now losing ground to Android, whether Apple should be getting out that Verizon iPhone. Now a report from Emma Woollacott over on TG Daily looks into a report from Credit Suisse about what would happen to AT&T once its exclusivity ends and a Verizon iPhone is launched which the article says they believe would be on February 15.
The Credit Suisse survey shows that almost a quarter, 1.4 million, of current AT&T iPhone users would change their carrier to Verizon if this happened. While many would wait until their contracts ran out 3% said they would switch immediately even if it meant breaking their contracts. Credit Suisse therefore report that new Verizon users could maybe double and that the giant carrier could gain 4 million new users next year.
However it’s not all bad news for AT&T as Credit Suisse has still raised the company’s rating from ‘neutral’ to ‘outperform’. For more on this go to tgdaily.com. We cannot be sure about that Verizon iPhone date of February 15 but obviously someone, somewhere believes it. If it did happen are you an AT&T user who would jump ship to Verizon? We’d be interested to hear your views on this so please do send in your comments.
