Twelve months ago, there sure were a lot of people saying Apple should/would never release a Verizon iPhone. Apparently those people are now MIA. Now its that Apple should/would never release a cheaper iPhone (a la the iPod Mini/Nano/Shuffle). We'll see.
Lots of people think you're wrong. Dalrymple and Gruber, both of whom obviously have sources. Oh and somebody named Tim Cook. Not sure who he is though...http://www.loopinsight.com/2011/02/2...repaid-iphone/http://daringfireball.net/linked/201...er-two-iphones What I don't understand is why the iPhone 3GS isn't being offered unlocked while the iPhone 4 now is in the US. I wonder how much that would go for off contract.
Its funny how often the right conflates freedom for corporations with freedom for people.
I am very surprised at the objections so far to this proposal. Google's ad-serving relies in part on tracking the user's location. It is just another breach of policy by the company that's not "evil." The use of that information needs to be regulated. If Apple (or more likely, iOS developers) isn't doing anything shady, they have nothing to worry about. "Q: Steve, Could you please explain the necessity of the passive location-tracking tool embedded in my iPhone?...
Still, Apple is more profitable than both combined. Dell only made $927 million last quarter.
So why did Verizon add 13 times the number of new subscribers last quarter that AT&T did?
You must have not read all the way to the end of the article: "Verizon Wireless added 1.8 million customers in the quarter, and now has 104 million total connections. For comparison, AT&T revealed on Wednesday that it added just 62,000 customers in the quarter." Not really weak at all for Verizon. Maybe weak for Apple, at least lower numbers for the iPhone than I thought they would be on Verizon, but don't conflate the two. Customers strongly associate Android with...
Barely, but it is surprising. I think we'll know more with the iPhone 5. And I just bought an iPhone for my son. The Verizon store we went to was stuffed with Android phones, and lots of sales people motivated to sell them.
So where is everybody who 12 months ago was saying Apple would never release a CDMA iPhone? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lgIB9XRaj0E
