Verizon and Apple iPhone 4G: Joining hands in 2010?

There is no shortage of news when it comes to the new Apple iPhone 4G, and the constant reports that Verizon are to team up with the Cupertino based company. We know that the exclusivity deal with AT&T is due to end in the summer, so will we see Apple and Verizon joining hands in 2010?

Phones Review said that the Verizon network is not ready just yet for the iPhone. The funny thing is, Apple did go to Verizon first but it seems that they had too many demands for them, which is why AT&T got and still has the deal with the iPhone.

It certainly seems as though history is repeating itself, Verizon and Apple are holding price negotiations, but the carrier is thought to be asking too much per handset as well as wanting to stick with its V Cast Store instead of embracing Apple’s App Store.

You would have thought that Verizon would be doing all they can to get a deal with Apple and its iPhone; after all, it is the best selling handset on the market. No matter what new smartphone is launched, none of them can compete with the iPhone 3GS.

Verizon recently launched the Motorola Droid; sales have not made a dent in the iPhone 3GS. Google launched its Nexus One; its sales have been laughably. Just imagine what sales will be like for the rumored iPhone 4G, which is rumored to be released in the first part of this year.

Apple are in a difficult position, they would love to increase sales by offering the iPhone to Verizon, but how could they lower the price, they would have to do the same for AT&T. Then again, this could increase sales even further.

Do you think we will see a Verizon iPhone 3GS or 4G in 2010?
