Verizon iPhone 4 / 5: Informative Article
We’ve been covering news about a Verizon iPhone for months it seems and we know just how many of you are waiting for it and hoping it’s going to be released soon. We told for instance how many people were disappointed it didn’t appear at the last Apple media event on September 1 and then wrote about how many people would leave AT&T for Verizon if the Big Red got the iPhone. More recently we wondered if there might be any mention at the next Apple media event this coming Wednesday but think this is unlikely.
There has been so much speculation about a Verizon iPhone 4 or indeed 5 that it has been difficult to keep on top of all the news and rumors and to make sense of it all. That’s where a really useful article by Kent German and Erica Ogg over on Cnet comes in. Laid out in a questions and answers format the article aims to supply all the information out there about a Verizon iPhone.
For example the fact that more and more reports say a Verizon iPhone will be out in the New Year and whether this is really true is answered, and says that the release does seem to be gaining momentum after recent reports from the Wall Street Journal. The fact that AT&T raised its early termination fears earlier this year also leads people to believe the company is preparing for a mass exodus. Similarly the fact that Verizon is about to start selling the Apple iPad gives even more credence to the rumors as the two companies are now already established in a working relationship.
When it comes to the question of when we might see the Verizon iPhone it’s still looking likely for January 2011 and the likelihood is that it will be very similar to the iPhone 4 on AT&T but with CDMA chips. The valid point is also made that Ivan Seidenberg, Verizon CEO, is set to make a keynote address on January 6 at the 2011 Consumer Electronics Show although the idea that Steve Jobs would let anybody steal his thunder with the announcement is somewhat improbable.
The article goes into much more detail with many questions and answers that seek to clarify the current situation about a Verizon iPhone so for more go to cnet.com.
