New Verizon iPhone: Apple’s battle with Google Android

Following on from the news this week about Apple’s alleged plans to release a CDMA-compatible iPhone on Verizon, one analyst believes that the move is all down to one reason – Google’s Android platform.

As reported from Apple Insider, analyst Shaw Wu with Kaufman Bros believes that Android is the silent factor which is pushing Apple closer to a deal with Verizon.

He mentioned recent figures about Google gaining more ground in the smartphone market, stating that by moving to Verizon – Apple would be able to take on Google head-to-head.

It seems pretty logical to us. Future premium smartphones such as the HTC EVO 4G, HTC Incredible and Nexus One (Verizon) all run the Android operating system, so Apple may look to go on the counter-attack with their Verizon iPhone.
