Verizon iPhone, White iPhone 4, iPhone 5, what do you think?
Ah the big wide world of the tech reporting biz and speculations, for years now rumours of a Verizon iPhone have been hitting the net waves, with the latest being the CDMA iPhone will hit in January 2011, with the most recent of these rumours has it that the Verizon iPhone and the iPhone 5 will be one and the same.
But really the only valid speculation at this time is not with the Verizon iPhone or iPhone 5 but with the white iPhone 4 and just when customers are likely to gain the device. The word is that the white iPhone 4 will be available later this year, but will it or will there be another round of reasons why Apple can’t put the device out.
Rumour has it that the white version has been delayed due to manufacturing problems to do with the paint, and then there’s rumour that it’s being delayed so Apple can fix the antenna issues before releasing the new white version.
But if Apple release an all new antenna fixed white iPhone 4 won’t those that have purchased the black iPhone 4 with the antenna issue want to change their device for a white one without the antenna problems?
No doubt if the Verizon iPhone arrives in January, many will opt to go with the Big Red, but will those people already tied into a 2 year contact pay to get out of that contract to switch to Verizon? If and this is a big if, Apple decide to push out the iPhone 5 months early, would those that have already purchased the iPhone 4 be ready to purchase the iPhone 5?
All speculation and rumours, but what we’d like to know is what our readers think of these rumours. Should Apple release a Verizon iPhone next? Should they release an iPhone 5 next, or should they just get a move on and push out the white iPhone 4?
