So the rumors are that Verizon and Apple will be bringing an iPhone with CDMA capabilities to the Verizon network. Possibly an LTE version to follow later in 2011 as well with the 5th generation refresh. We've seen quite a few articles that say this could be a really bad sign for Android. We've seen the reports that say up to 23% of AT&T users would jump ship to Verizon if they had the iPhone. But what does that mean for Verizon's Android users? Even Slashdot has a lively discussion going on about this very issue.
The world is abuzz with Apple and Google battling it out for the future of not just the smartphone platform, but the tablet and even the television. Newsweek is talking about it. We've talked about it.
Well, we figured the best place to find that out would be here. The virtual Lions Den of Android using Verizon customers: DroidForums.net. If any figure out there can tell us what impact the iPhone coming to Verizon will have, this would be the place. We've got a huge base of both light users as well as hard core Android Hackers, Rommers and Themers coming to this place every day. We should be able to get a pretty broad guesstimate as to what might happen if and when the iPhone ever really does come.
To find out we are going to put up a poll and we ask that as many members as possible participate in it and give us their honest truth. In 3 months time if there were an iPhone available on the Verizon network and you were up for your New Every 2 and the price point was equivalent to the latest and greatest Android phone at that time: Would you switch?
Please let us know by participating in the poll. If you have any friends that are using Android with Verizon and they aren't a member yet, please ask them to register and take part in our little poll here.
Thanks for your time and remember, this place will always be hardcore Android!
