    I wish I could spin stuff that much. Last I check VZW ain't desperate, and the Iphone rumors been around longer than the D1. It was funny though.

    Yes I read that article and could tell it was written with apple bias. If those sales figures are correct that would explain why Verizon seems to be showing an increased interest in the iPhone. They sell themselves and they sell a lot. I just hope we continue to have good Droid options.

    that's retarded! I'm not sure who all knows this but apple went to verizon before at & t and verizon turned them down because they wanted too much power! At least that's what one verizon rep said... So who needs apple?

    Nubbie,

    I think you're lying. Every single person I've met with the iPhone loves the phone, but hates the network.

    In time, Android may take over, but right now, iPhone is still king and for good reason.
