    It's a ploy to deflect the "reception issue's" and holding the phone another way that are all over the net.

    Steve: "I'm getting slaughtered for my comments about holding the phone a different way!!! We need people who declined to be named to put a fake story out that the iPhone is coming to VZW!!!"

    Exec: "but Steve thats an all out lie"

    Steve: "Thats why they are people who decline to be named you idiot!!"

    It's not going to happen. I truly wish people would stop posting these things.

    It's more than a rumor when Bloomberg prints it.

    The consumorist slaves of our society make me want to punch a baby. I would really like to meet the "millions" of people that are going to buy the iPhone 4 on VZW. Androis sales will go down?!?!?

    It's really too bad that people are such suckers for Apple's marketing.

    Brain-dead end-user: "I should get a cell phone.

    Steve Jobs: "You need out super-proprietary iPhone 4. You can't modify it or customize it, we only let you use the apps that we like, and it will drop your calls if you touch it!!!!!"

    Drain-dead end-user: "I'll take it!"

    Steve Jobs: "Don't forget to worship it!

    I wish it would happen already but I've heard rumors about this for years. If it was true, AT&T would be offering some real unlimited plans and getting more good phones in their lineup since they would lose a bunch of customers.

    In my opinion the ONLY thing the iphone has over android is the front facing camera. Come Jan 2011 there will be some android phones with that camera, probably an android or chrome OS tablet as well.
    Apple is going down the same path they did in the 80's. Restricting their software to one hardware platform and locking it down more and more. I can't see how a developer would still program for that OS after seeing their track record of stealing apps, banning apps for no apparent reason while letting other apps that use the same technology.
    One thing that concerns me about Android is I'm finding a lot of crappy little "sexy chick pictures" apps in the market from Asia. I hope it doesn't get much more worse than it is. That will totally destroy the platform for kids and for females.

    Bloomberg is officially a joke following today's absurd VZW iPhone non story. Anonymous sources and no actual facts? Lame lame lame.
