Verizon Smartphone Kings: New iPhone and Palm Pre 2009
There has been talk that the speedy roll out of Verizon’s LTE next generation wireless broadband could possibly be a driver for Apple to give the iPhone to Verizon. Verizon is also expected to gain the Palm Pre a short time after Sprint.
Now kiplinger states that a Bernstein report says Apple could double sales of their iPhone if Verizon begins selling the iconic handset. Apple would definitely benefit, but Verizon would also come out a big winner.
Verizon and their LTE network has a few advantages over AT&T such as Verizon LTE can handle the video streaming that will soon rule the iPhone. And then there is AT&T’s reputation and that people simply don’t wish to sign up with AT&T. Therefore, if Verizon does snag both the Pam Pre smartphone and the new iPhone it would surely make them king of the smartphone arena.
