It is no secret that Verizon has never had any decent handsets in the past, but 2010 is about to change all that. The Big red has had to suffer while its rivals AT&T had all the glory with the Apple iPhone and other smartphones, so what has changed?
Well we know for certain that the HTC Incredible and the Google Nexus One are both coming to Verizon, which we reported in a recent post. But there is also the possibility of the iPhone 4G as well, which we recently reported. This is why we think that 2010 will be the year for Verizon – a long time coming according to its customers.
Never before has Verizon had so much anticipation for a handset launch, but this is just what is happening with the HTC Incredible and the Nexus One. We know they will be released soon, but are still unsure of a release date. We had assumed that the latter would have been launched at CTIA 2010, but it was a no show.
AT&T must be worried about Verizon this year, as they have now changed their company strategy, which we covered in a post this morning.
