Despite the fact that rumors are mounting on a possible Verizon iPhone release in early 2011, a fresh report published earlier today has indicated that a deal between Verizon and Apple for the iPhone 4 may never happen.
As reported from Apple Insider, the news has come from Wall Street Analyst Mike Abramsky, who believes that Verizon are holding back on a deal, due to Apple’s demands over the iPhone, demands which could jeopardize Verizon’s growing Android franchise.
Abramsky adds that Apple will not want to play second fiddle to the likes of Verizon’s Android-equipped Droid handsets, with either company unwilling to give in to particular demands.
We told you a few days ago that the Verizon CEO wanted an iPhone for their upcoming LTE 4G network, but Abramsky thinks that won’t happen if Android continues to perform well for the carrier.
What are your thoughts on this? Would you happily trade your Android handset on Verizon aside in favor of an iPhone?
