    Hmm iPhoners on Verizon, I dono man... I am not excited if this is true. Now that they are mass producing the iPhones I hope that doesn't greatly increase the suicides at the Japanese factories....

    Unfortunately, it is true.

    Now, will be interesting to see how Android fares.

    Exciting times ahead.

    Oh android will still grow. Probably not exponentially but it still will. People forget how much people love open software

    I will probably switch, especially if the iPhone is LTE. Early cancellation fee and all.

    Am I the only one that noticed that this was entirely at the authors word? They didn't give a specific source, didn't even say "an unnamed source." Matter of fact at the end of the article it said: "Spokeswomen for Apple and Qualcomm declined to comment; a spokesman for Verizon Wireless, owned by Verizon Communications Inc. and Vodafone Group PLC, declined to comment."

    Now I recognize the fact that The Wall Street Journal isn't just somebody's blog with their gums flapping. Still I see a lack of substance here.

    This is a pretty weak confirmation, but if true and network speed suffers significantly I will be switching to someone like Sprint. :cus:

    Okay, I'm not as techy as most ppl on here so, help me out a little here...

    ...what can the iPhone do that an up-to-date Android device cant?

    Because after playing w/ them as an employee @ AT&T, to me they are mad overrated.

    The only thing I'll give Apple is that there are more apps in their store and less market fragmentation so apps tend to be less buggy across devices. Besides that I agree with you, it's an overrated fanboi phone.

    Android phone manufacturers had better ease up on the bootloader lockdown when the iPhone comes to Verizon. I think the only edge they have is Google intergration and "geek" cred. When I had an iPhone 3GS I liked the phone but hated the network.

    I hate to use an internet meme but...

    S*** just got real.
