Verizon iPhone in the works
According to the Wall Street Journal, the iPhone will be coming to Verizon users in its upcoming 4G version.
AT&T’s monopoly on the iPhone is finally about to end…
There has been much speculation about how much longer the iPhone will remain exclusively with AT&T in the U.S. A report earlier this year indicated that the exclusivity deal would end in 2010 and that AT&T was seeking to extend it.
Verizon is the largest cellular service provider in the U.S. with over 91 million subscribers. Reports earlier this year indicated that Verizon was in talks with Apple to gain access to the iPhone and the iPad, though no official news resulted. Verizon also purportedly claimed that its network is already ready for the iPhone and the associated network traffic it would bring.
How this changes up the game will be interesting.
