Verizon iPhone – The Cause Of Early Android Launches?

Verizon has upped the ante when it comes to the amount of handsets they have launched this year, and there has been a bug push towards the end of the year. Big Red has even moved a few release dates forward, which has us wondering if they are making a space ready for the iPhone?

Nilay Patel from Engadget points to the fact that the Droid 2 Global did not get the chance to be officially announced before it was made available to purchase. Then there is the Droid Pro, this was meant to be pre-order only ready, for its November 18th release — so how come you can get buy it now?

I am sure that those of you wanting these new Android handsets will not complain, but there has to be a reason? Never before have I seen handsets offered up earlier than was said — although we know that some have been known to ship early due to error.

The speculation of the Verizon iPhone has been increasing week on week, with many media outlets suggesting a January 2011 release. There has been mixed reaction over Apple’s smartphone coming to Big Red, with some suggesting that they do not care and are now happy that they made the switch to Android.

Why do you think Verizon has been releasing their handsets early?
