IPhone Finally Available On Verizon
There have been plenty of rumors that Apple would finally make the iPhone available on Verizon. Tuesday there will be an announcement that this is in fact going to occur. There is no word as to when these devices will be in the stores. Apple is strategically adding more partners to grow sales of the product.
It looks like a good year for Verizon who has already done well with their Google-powered phones. Many Verizon users are loyal to their quality service.
Iphone has drawn many to AT&T, but there have been complaints about their service. According to WSJ.com “IPhone users have long complained about dropped calls and poor service on AT&T’s network, even as the carrier boosted spending to improve coverage. A Consumer Reports survey last month ranked Verizon’s network as most reliable among the major carriers and AT&T’s as the worst.”
What kind of sales can be expected with the new iPhone relationship? Mobiledia.com reported, “Analysts at financial firm Pacific Crest believe that component orders and anecdotal evidence suggest that the launch of a CDMA iPhone at Verizon is “highly-likely” in March. They also estimate that Verizon will be able to sell approximately three million iPhones in the second quarter of 2011, offset by approximately 600,000 fewer iPhone sales at AT&T.”
