Verizon iPhone: Trouble for Google Android?

By Posted 19 Aug 2010, 02:51

We all know the Verizon iPhone is coming, it just seems a matter of when for Apple and Verizon. We have found an interesting article for you to read now, which suggests that the release of the iPhone on Verizon could spell the end for Google’s Android.

That article comes to us courtesy of ZDnet, who believe that Android may struggle to keep up with their current success in the market, if the iPhone lands on Verizon.

While Motorola’s collection of Android handsets on Verizon are performing well, Google know that most Verizon fans are holding out for an iPhone, backed up by a recent survey here.

Zdnet bring up the interesting point of the iPhone being on a carrier that consumers actually like, and not being forced to sign with another due to iPhone exclusivity. It is no secret that Verizon remains more popular than AT&T, so would an iPhone on Verizon spell doom for Android?

Read the full article over at Zdnet and let us know if you have anything to share on this debate.

    Based on what I read, iPhone CDMA is coming, but may not be available to Verizon subscribers.

    Its too little too late, iphone RIP.

    Most current Android users that switch over to Apple will se it clutzy compared to Android, experience the lack of useful apps like swype, google navigation, freedom and they will be back with Android before you know it.

    Lol.
    I love to read these biased "reviews"
    "Could spell the end for Android"? Are you serious? Android is already selling way better, and you expect it to go to a complete halt when iPhone hits Verizon?

    Get bent.

      Uh, “review”??? What product is being “reviewed”??? This is an opinion/editorial, not a review. The writer is paid to write his opinion, something that you Android fanboys obviously can’t handle. No two words scare an Android fanboy more than “Verizon iPhone”. And with good reason….it’s gonna be a BLOODBATH!!!!

        LOL u know that android is much better. Plus compare evo4g to iphone4. Evo witch is run by android leaves iPhone in the dust.

    I actually made the move to Android after having the original, and the 3g Iphone, I was only able to handle the Android for 2 months, and then went back to the Iphone 4. I will never move from the Iphone again.

  • Jdub

    It took 30 different Android phones spread out over all 4 major networks (with Verizon offering Droids in a BOGO deal, I might add) just to catch up to the iPhone, which is 1 model on 1 network. Now that the iPhone is coming and we won’t have to leave our beloved network to get one, you’ll see less and less people settle for fake, phony, wannabe, derivitive Androids and more and more people going after the real deal…

    Honestly I think that android is whey better. U can customize practically anything, iPhone u really can’t. I had the iPhone and then tried a evo 4g I never went back.
