As you may have read a few days ago, it seems as if the iPhone 4 could arrive on Verizon Wireless in 2011, AT&T’s iPhone 4 release has probably had a detrimental affect on Verizon’s shares, therefore a Verizon iPhone 4 release could have an equally bad affect on AT&T.
A recent article posted on BusinessWeek looks into how big this affect could be, their article suggests that AT&T could potentially lose 1 million customers if and when Verizon begin offering the iPhone 4.
Bloomberg suggest that there are a lot of iPhone owners out there who are unhappy with AT&T’s coverage, therefore it wouldn’t be surprising if customers ended their contracts early to switch to Verizon.
One expert by the name of John Hodulik suggests that Verizon could perhaps sell over 12 million iPhones in its first year, to do this they would almost certainly be drawing in customers from other rival carriers, especially AT&T.
This whole post really depends on whether Apple are developing a CDMA-based iPhone 4, if they really are AT&T really need to improve their U.S. coverage, as feedback we have received suggests that a high percentage of iPhone owners are less than happy.
Do you think a Verizon iPhone 4 would be much better than an AT&T iPhone 4?
