It Has Arrived: The Verizon iPhone 4 is Here!

Posted by Levine Communications Office on January 11, 2011

Do you hear that…soft cries of happiness  from AT&T customers (and from people who are glad to FINALLY put this rumor to bed).  The mythical Verizon iPhone is now a reality.  Announced this morning at Verizon’s much-anticipated press conference in New York City, VZ’s COO Lowell McAdam confirmed what many had wanted for so long.  Starting early next month, Verizon will be selling the iPhone.

Many of the predictions the tech community has made about the Verizon iPhone are true; there were no major modifications to the hardware with the exception of a redesigned antenna and lack of sim card slot.

And even though this is a major boon for Verizon and would be iPhone users everywhere there are a few details that should be considered before you run out and grab the gadget.

  1. It’s not 4G.  The phone has been designed to run on Verizon’s older CDMA network.   More than likely Apple will introduce the newest generation (iPhone 5) of the super phone this summer with LTE (Long Term Evolution) capability.  Will Verizon customers be able to upgrade seamlessly to the new model?
  2. CDMA = No ability to call and surf at the same time.  So you can’ talk and check your email.  Kind of a downside.  However, the CDMA Development Group has said this will change for all CDMA operators this spring (we’ll see).
  3. If you’re a current VZ customer, you have a whole host of other things to think about besides the tech factor and they all come down to upgrade credits and cycles (see this blog from Engadget for more details)

With any smart phone purchase there are many reasons to consider before making the investment but the iPhone coming to Verizon is a pretty good thing and it opens up the possibility for the phone going to other CDMA carriers this year (Sprint, T-Mobile).

Will you be getting the Verizon iPhone 4? Let us know in our comments section!
