It has been a well heated topic on whether consumers will ever have an Apple device available on the Verizon network, opposed to the AT&T network. After the iPad became available with Verizon, consumers have awaited for the iPhone to become available on the network.
The iPhone 4 will be available on Verizon starting February 10th, and will sell for $199.99 for the base 16GB storage capacity. Pre-sale orders are no longer from Verizon, which seems like they have sold all of their phones, so if you’re planning on buying one, you might have to wait a few weeks.
Verizon has stepped up, and addressed the wrong-hand-dropped-call problem. The original iPhone 4 with AT&T has a built-in antenna that if someone held the phone with their left hand, their call would be dropped. Verizon added a antenna breaker on the top left corner of the phone, which will hopefully thoroughly make this problem obsolete.
The Verizon iPhone 4 will be an interesting phone to see rival the AT&T iPhone 4. The antenna problem might just be the lone reason for consumers to switch from AT&T to Verizon. Additional Apps or hardware haven’t been released. Once the iPhone is released, we will surely be able to see if the switch is worth a new antenna.
