We all assumed that Apple would offer Verizon the iPhone back when they unveiled the iPad — which is up for pre-order today — but that did not happen. Now we wait to see if Verizon will get the new iPhone 4G when it is rumored to be released in June or July.
This would certainly have an effect on the BlackBerry Storm 2, as users will not want this poor performing touchscreen smartphone from RIM — although there are rumors of a Blackberry Storm 3 on the way. Even if Research In Motion was able to launch a new Storm later this year — will it be good enough to stop people buying the iPhone 4G on Verizon?
Apple have and always will stick with its touchscreen user interface — as it is probably the best on the market, recent rumors suggest that RIM are to go with a slider option with the Storm 3. We have to wonder if it has something to do with Blackberry users not comfortable with how previous version of the RIM touch device has performed in the past?
Would you drop your Storm 2 in favor of the iPhone 4G?
