Verizon iPhone 4G, not before 2011 considering AT&T extension

Tim Cook Apple’s COO described AT&T as a great partner when he was asked during a conference call in January, he also spoke about its plans and intentions to improve the performance of its wireless network.

Generally iPhone customers are having no problems although there are some issues in certain cities and they have very detailed plans to fix those problems. The support that is clearly apparent between AT&T and Apple and the decision taken to debut the iPad on the carrier’s network is now fuelling the speculation that AT&T may actually hold onto iPhone exclusive for a lot longer than we have expected.

According to Barclays analyst Vijay Jayant the arrangement is going to last throughout the summer and maybe even to the end of the year, and the recent launch of the Apple iPad on AT&T’s network is obviously a vote of confidence in AT&T’s network.

It isn’t expected that iPad sales will have a major impact on wireless revenues, not in the short term anyway. Having selected AT&T to launch their second major communication product does in fact reflect Apple’s bias for the global GSM platform. Source – digitaldaily.allthingsd.com
