If the Apple iPhone does not migrate soon to Verizon Wireless, the world will spin off its partnership. Those 2012 doomsday forecasts will prove to be true. Antidepressant usage amongst iPhone-craving Verizon clientele will increase madly.
There is no need to worry that much and keeping back those pills will be a better idea. Due to months of rumors, rumblings, and rants, which also includes this week's unclearly sourced scooplet from Bloomberg, it roughly seems like a done agreement: The iPhone will at last unlock the shackles of AT&T exclusivity and come to Verizon.
An iPhone 4G or whatever name, Steve Jobs and his marketing experts opt for, would no doubt prove to be a media bonanza for both the firms.
What better phone than the trend-setter iPhone to showcase Verizon's super-fast LTE network, which the carrier says is delivering downstream speeds of 8.55M bps in some tests.
As for Apple, a 4G data network may unleash a number of the iPhone's dormant capabilities. Say, the new FaceTime video chat feature, at present, only restricted to iPhone 4 models connected to Wi-Fi networks, might be freed to operate by means of LTE as well, thereby permitting video chats in many more situations.
