Its not that simple for Verizon, they are dealing with analog/CDMA/EV-DO/LTE. Verizon may do a better job than AT&T at managing all of these standards but Verizon certainly is not dealing with only two.
Of course, it matters --- because AT&T's network integration was still continuing in 2006-2007 while the alleged rumored jerry-rigged was taking place. If AT&T had fully finished their merger related integration in 2006-7, then there would have been no need to jerry-rig the iphone launch.
Exactly what were they jerry-rigging? Do you actually have any details on what they were jerry-rigging?
On the basis that TomTom sells their nav apps to dozens and dozens of other smartphones, the iphone is the only one that they need to include a separate GPS receiver.
Complete biased speculation, in other words BS.
TomTom has not made an integrated dashboard cradle for dozens and dozens of other phones. As far as I can see the iPhone is the only phone they've made one for.
I would imagine TomTom's GPS receiver works better than the GPS receiver in any phone.
