Dreams do come true.
The New York Times is confirming the rumors of a Verizon iPhone based on an anonymous source directly connected to Apple.
Rumors of a Verizon-Apple collaboration have circulated for years, with the most recent a report by the Wall Street Journal, however, this latest story by the NYT should be the last nail on the rumor’s proverbial coffin even though Verizon and Apple have still declined to make an official announcement.
With Android’s rapid ascent as a viable platform, Apple has no choice but to end its exclusivity with AT&T, or else risk losing its dominant market share in the lucrative mobile market.
It’s about time too.
I’ve been waiting since the original iPhone launch for this to happen and when it does, I shall finally have a smart phone. Whether or not this shall make me any smarter still remains to be seen.
Will you drop your current carrier/cell phone for a Verizon iPhone?
