Verizon iPhone 4G: Why it could be great for consumers

By Alan Ng - Apr 10, 2010

While the release of the iPhone on Verizon’s network would generally be an great thing for current subcribers, we have an article for you to read now, which explains why the release of the iPhone on Verizon could also be great for your pocket.

As reported from Cnet, a Verizon iPhone could spark a huge price war on Apple’s device if it was to come to Verizon. As it stands it is only available in the US on AT&T, and at a pretty high price too. So much, that Cnet has compared prices for the iPhone in the US and prices for the iPhone in the UK.

A quick study on iPhone prices in the UK concludes, that it is much cheaper buying an iPhone over there, than paying a much higher price for one on AT&T.

Earlier on this week, we mentioned how T-Mobile might be getting the iPhone in the future too, along with Verizon. If this happens, you can bet that Verizon, T-Mobile and maybe even Sprint will battle it out to offer the best price for their customers.

If the iPhone 4G does stay on AT&T this Summer, then it is almost certain that you’ll have to pay even more than you do at the moment. If it lands on another carrier though, data plans may start to become a lot cheaper for you.

Have a read of Cnet’s article and let us know what you think of this.
