And this summer is too long to wait. Have the Verizon iPhone ( the ViPhone?) ready for the special event you have coming up. And a new Apple TV too while you're at it. I have a wallet full of cash! Don't you want some of it? You know you do.
Yeah dude, it ain't happening. Get over it!
Apple doesn't need Verizon, Verizon doesn't need Apple. It's plain and simple.
If Apple doesn't want them to control their device with Verizons crappy VCast ans stuff, and Verizon doesn't want Apple to control the Verizon network, than they're both in an equal disagreement.
I hate it, when people, that don't have common sense, and know nothing about cell phones, and carriers, say.. "Oh! the iPhone is coming to Verizon this year. I'm waiting for it." or "They're already making the iPhone Nano. And it's gonna be on Verizon." or "People on the news said so, and i think it's true because they're are rumors." and then they think Apple is already unveiling stuff out of the blue! Seriously, good lord, just shut up!
I'm gonna share a true story, and something you can look up to yourself.
If you go to YouTube, and you type in- "Part 11 - Macworld 2007 - Steve Jobs Keynote Speech - iPhone"
and whatch about the beginning of 11th video of when Steve Jobs announced that Cingular(AT&T) Would become the exclusive carrier of the iPhone. Moments after having Cingulars CEO walk off the stage and having Steve come back up, Steve told everybody at MacWorld, at 0:57 "we have worked wonderfully together, and we love these guys."
and at 1:01 he actually said!!!-"We're gonna bring some great stuff to market over the years TOGETHER!"
Uh, hello? doesn't that ring a bell? A possible tablet under the AT&T network?
Seriously guys, open your minds and think about it and don't go along with what people say and the rumors they hear.
That's why Apple built a phone, so it can call and ring all over the world with GSM carriers. That's why they came up with the iPhone 3G S, so it can go blazing fast on downloads and browser, on the device, and on the country's fastest 3G network.
They see this phone as a smart, intelligent, business also phone. So you can talk & browse, etc.
If Apple were to come up with another carrier, i'm sure it'd probably be T-Mobile.
but seriously, take a look at that MacWorld keynote.
