Verizon iPhone 4 Offically Announced
With much fanfare, but not a great deal of surprise, Verizon announced the introduction of their Apple iPhone 4, which will be available starting February 10th.
Virtually identical to the AT&T version, except for a tiny differnce in the antenna wrapped around the edge, the unit does not even sport a Verizon logo.
A highlight of the features of this phone are:
It runs on Verizon using 3G (EVDO) CDMA. Verizon's much touted 4G (LTE) will probably be forthcoming on a future iPhone.
Unlike AT&T, 3G CDMA does NOT allow a user to talk and browse simultaneously.
The iPhone is finally usable as a Wi-Fi hot spot, supporting a total of five devices simultaneously. The fabled iPad-iPhone tether now exists!
The Verizon iPhone is NOT a world phone. The AT&T phone works world-wide.
The pricing is identical from both companies: $200 for a 16GB model, and $300 for a 32GB model with a 2-year contract.
Let the stampede begin!
