Following on from our earlier article, which informed you about the Verizon CEO and his latest comments in relation to an iPhone release, we thought we would put this into perspective and what it means for potential or current Verizon customers this year.
Firstly, if you haven’t read the article earlier today, you can do so here. Verizon CEO Ivan Seidenberg states that it is now Apple’s call, if the iPhone lands on Verizon or not, as the carrier are now ‘open to the idea’. Considering the information gathered so far on a CMDA iPhone, it is looking likely that a release will happen later on this year.
If the iPhone wasn’t big enough for Verizon contract holders, then what about the HTC Incredible and Nexus One? Details on the Nexus One on Verizon have slowed a little since CTIA Wireless 2010, but we definitely know it is coming to Verizon soon, even Google has confirmed it here.
As for the HTC Incredible, it is only a matter of time before this handset lands on Verizon – it will probably be the first handset out of the three which does release first.
If you combine the iPhone 4G, HTC Incredible and Nexus One handets together, it is looking like a very powerful lineup for Verizon in 2010. Would AT&T and Sprint be able to cope with this? The situation may change once the HTC EVO 4G is released, but it is looking slightly worrying for AT&T.
Let us know your thoughts on this. Will you be moving to Verizon if either of these handsets release soon?
