iPhone 4G, OS 4.0 Features: AT&T Support In 2010

By Peter Chubb - Apr 21, 2010

Much has been said over the past few weeks about the iPhone 4G and its iPhone OS 4.0 OS. We know by Apple’s preview event a couple of weeks back that the new mobile operating system will come with 100 new features, one of which is multitasking. However, we have to wonder if AT&T will be able to handle some of these new features?

Some people will not care about that at the moment, all they are interested in is the misplaced 4th-generation iPhone that has been getting all he media attention. But the idea that AT&T and its inability to handle OS 4.0 could play into the hands of Verizon – who has been tying to get hold of the iPhone since its launch back in 2007.

According to Business Week, a couple of the new features that AT&T could struggle with is the front-facing camera features, we all know that they only offer one-way video support at the moment, maybe they are working on a fix now. Another new feature on the iPhone 4G is its rumored Micro SIM, this will be a major headache for AT&T and those who already own an iPhone and want to upgrade.

Do you think that with some of these new changes, Verizon will finally get the iPhone?

    Its already been mentioned a few months back in documents from Verizon HQ that there is an iphone version being developed with CDMA functionality. Could this iphone here be for Verizon as well? I want to say yes, but I doubt it as AT&T’s only leverage they have against Verizon is Apple. Just as they lost the palm pre before, this may become a trend consumers are happy about. 2-way XVC (xross video communication) is in development with AT&T.

    Marketing is the #1 focus in any retail business. AT&T can not provide what Verizon already has, making them the leading provider. I personally would rather see smartphones available to all major cell phone providers. Its more money to the phone manufacturer and allows new contracts to be made to the providers.
