According to Bloomberg and its two sources, Verizon will begin offering the iPhone in January when AT&T’s exclusivity contract ends on the Apple device. Does this rumor hold water? It’s anyone’s guess at this point, but recent reports suggest that AT&T’s reign of terror could end in January.
The best part of Bloomberg’s report is the quote from UBS AG analyst John Hodulik. This guy must be making the big bucks.
“The fact is, Apple is going to dramatically increase the number of devices it sells in the U.S. when exclusivity at AT&T ends,” said Hodulik. “It’s hard to ignore the quality issues that AT&T has faced.”
