    Haven't seen this posted yet. Maybe because it doesn't really directly relate to the Droid but, apparently, Verizon went public today about adding the iPhone to the Verizon phone lineup. I don't have a link. I was talking to a manger for Verizon today and he said the announcement was suppose to "go public" today.

    No link no proof! Haha. I've heard acouple times about the iSUCK coming to Verizon and all the issues blah blah blah but I haven't ever seen anything overly official about this happening. Anyone have a legit link to facts on this?

    "Went public" and "suppose to go public" are different.

    I didn't read/hear anything about it.

    And if Verizon does get the iPhone, June 29 would be the earliest as ATT has exclusive rights until then.

    I know, I'm just posting what I was told from a manager at Verizon today. He said that Verizon "went public" today with an announcement about bringing the iPhone 4G to Verizon. I don't really care if I'm wrong or right, just relaying information from a manager at Verizon. Maybe he was flat out lying, I don't know.

    I heard that Apple has an event going on I think 1/27/2010, and rumors are going around that they might make announcment about the Iphone to Verizon, this is just a rumor. I wont believe it till I actually have real proof.

    I'll probably have to get it and jailbreak it. This Droid touchscreen and no multi touch is so far very disappointing. Google seems to not be taking this challenge seriously.

    I would hardly call it a downgrade unless you run the iPhone on AT&T.

    I waited and waited for Verizon to get the iPhone. Now that I have my Droid, I would not switch if they gave me one for free.

    This will become just like PC vs MAC... everyone will have their opinions about each. Bottom line is they both have great features and are lacking in other areas.

    Personally:
    The iPhone will be for those that like the idea of MAC/Apple: here's your product, thanks for paying 3x more than it's worth so you can be 'in' and you MUST use it how we say.
    The Droid will be the PC: it's your hardware do as much or as little with it as you like. Play with your OS (or even change your OS). Oh and enjoy the extra $$$, heck buy two for the cost of 1 Apple:icon_ banana:.

    AFB firebombing to commence in 3, 2, 1.... :icon_ devil:

    Although I don't have the droid yet, I'm in the same boat, I've wanted an iphone forever but I'm so stoked fo rthe droid, I don't think iphone to verizon news will change my decision to get one.
