    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.

    Who cares?! My brother has an I*hone and my D1 rooted blows it away! Google Voice, wireless tether, Liquid Froyo custom rom, google navigator. The I*hone is pretty but that's about it.

    There are no sources cited in the article other than "these people" and "people briefed on the matter".

    I will never buy an IPhone period. Android kicks it's ass.

    Haha there are a bunch of clowns in this thread looking to jump ship. I guess android phones are just too technologically advanced for them. Or just not enough fart apps. The LTE phones coming out will obliterate the iphone on the spec sheet.
