    I really don't understand all this. I don't believe everyone will go out and buy an older technology. Is not the Iphone falling behind all the time? There are too many choices
    with android, and surprise! CES just now says we're not static. Iphone is still #4.
    maybe it's a fashion thing, but i just can't see it now..(we are talking about the future?)

    Lol I think its funny when people think iphone on verizon will be some kind of doom to android. I think the new android platform and devices will do just fine defending themselves, they will lose a number of customers just because people like the apple wagon but I don't think its something to get squeemish about :p

    And adding the iphone to verizon is probably to steal at&t customers & to get people using non-smartphones to upgrade to the iphone. But android will still become #1 because there still is a huge android movement on tmobile and sprint.

    We'll know for sure in 15 hours or so. 11am tomorrow in NYC they will have a major announcement. It's pretty certain it'll be announced.

    I will not switch to an iphone even if verizon gets it. Android all the way baby. I think verizon will attract att iphone users.

    +million. The only reason Droid devices are where they are today, is because nothing compares to them.

    Android is far more powerful than iphone and it will stay that way. Iphone is only made by Apple (obviously but bear with me.) Android has motorola, Htc, samsung, lg, etc all competing against each other within the android platform. As long as you have so much competition within the android platform, it will develop far beyond what apple can do by itself. Besides, who can really compete with google?

    I wouldnt get the iphone just because you guys all have to remember that android is relatively new compared To the iOS. The capabilities of android blow the iOS out of the water. Also with android based dual core phones coming out so fast, people with iphones won't know what hit them.

    That's funny... like people do with Ubuntu! I've already seen android on the ipad and ubuntu on the d1, and Chrome notebooks. They'll find a way to put Ubuntu on anything with a screen and a processor!

    What's hilarious is all of you talking like Apple is just stopping with what they have now and won't develop anything new. No new phone, processors, developments to the iOS system. Quit being blinded by your love of Android and look at the overall picture. Apple WILL continue to develop.

    Some of you are being obscenely naive.

    Yeah I don't get the whole "why would you want old tech" talk, as if Apple has put a moratorium on future development. As if a dual core iPhone, or an LTE iphone is not possible.

    The iPhone (and Apple) is innovation in every sense of the word...Apple is not going to remain passive and just let Android and android manufactures introduce new hardware and software and say "Oh well, we had a good run, guys!"

    i cant lie, the Iphone is an nice piece of machinery... If apple came out with a dual core Iphone with all the other bells and whistles I Might get one depending on the competing devices and whatnot then just put Android on it cus their devices are eye catching...!
