iPhone 5 May Release on Verizon and AT&T Simultaneously
It’s probably not too surprising but when the iPhone 5 eventually see release at some point later this year, the iPhone 5 may simultaneously launch on both Verizon Wireless and AT&T networks, which would be a bit of a bummer for those Verizon customers who have just picked up the Verizon iPhone.
There’s also mention that eventually Apple will deliver the iPhone 5 to both T-Mobile and Sprint as well as the mention of a carrier free iPhone 5 this summer, although personally I can’t see Apple delivering an iPhone 5 without carrier intervention somehow.
I’m not quite sure where they got their information so for now at least this should be treated as pure speculation, although personally I see no reason why Apple shouldn’t release the next generation iOS smartphone to Verizon and AT&T at the same time.
What are your views on this matter, do you think Apple should push out the iPhone 5 to both AT&T and Verizon simultaneously or do you feel AT&T should get the first bite of the cherry and Verizon gain the iPhone 5 at a later date?
