Two days ago when the Apple iPhone 4 was finally announced some potential U.S. customers were unhappy to hear that Apple decided to stick with AT&T, however there is still speculation surrounding a possible Verizon LTE iPhone release sometime next year.
This speculation is a result of AT&T’s eagerness to get customers to upgrade to the iPhone 4, a Barclays Capital analyst called James Ratcliffe believes that AT&T are trying to secure customers on two-year contracts because competition may be around the corner.
This competition could be the release of a Verizon iPhone in the first-quarter of 2011, let’s face it an iPhone 4 on Verizon’s LTE network would be a great combination. If a Verizon iPhone did turn up in early 2011 it would obviously stir-up a lot of interest, however customers who sign-up to an AT&T contract with an iPhone 4 would still have at least a year of their agreement to see out.
Therefore many experts are asking the million dollar question, will you wait for a Verizon LTE iPHone 4? Let us know your thoughts in the comments section below. The only thing putting me off is the fact you could wait a year for a Verizon iPhone release, only to find that it never turns up.
