iPhone 4G: Verizon Wireless, Sprint and some other carriers

In the last hour Biz Journals has posted an article, which suggests that Apple’s iPhone may need Verizon thanks to stiff competition from Google Android. The UK has already opened up the iPhone to other networks, but AT&T still have iPhone exclusivity in the U.S.

The article also reveals just how close Google are to Apple in terms of global smartphone traffic – Apple are on 50 percent, with Google trailing with 24 percent.

With the amount of Android handsets being churned out recently, particularly the HTC EVO on Sprint, Google’s share of the smartphone market is only going to rise before the end of the year.

Is this a clear indication that Apple want to take a firm grip on the overall market by annoucning a CDMA iPhone on Verizon? Have a read of the article above, then let us know your thoughts on this.

Do you agree with the article over at Biz Journals? Do Apple need more carrier choice?
