And according to analysts no matter if one or both carriers actually end up signing some kind of deal Apple wins. Research company iSuppli estimates Apple earns more than a 50 percent profit margin for the Apple iPhone.

But adding Verizon could well double Apple’s take which one would assume Apple would eagerly grab, but AT&T aren’t going to give up their exclusivity deal easily and no doubt will throw something into the mix to entice Apple to extend that deal.
