Everyone is getting really excited about the rumored Apple tablet announcement tomorrow, but we may be overlooking something that is staring us right in the face. AT&T have had the iPhone exclusive for a long time, which has had many phone buyers crying out for an iPhone on Verizon Wireless but that has not happened yet.
What is better than a Verizon iPhone? A next-generation Tablet PC from Apple with a 3G wireless connection and WiFi, which is also exclusive to Verizon Wireless. Imagine if Apple partner with Verizon for a new Tablet / iSlate / iPad or whatever they will call the device. This could be just what Verizon need to lift profits, and get an edge on the competition.
The Washington Post has taken a look at this idea and how an Apple tablet exclusive could cause regulatory concerns at the Federal Communications Commission (FCC). The idea is not just a pipe dream; there is some solid evidence that something big is coming from Verizon on Wednesday (the same day as Apple’s big announcement).
