After four years of speculation and rumors, a Verizon iPhone 4 was finally announced at a press event in New York City on Tuesday. Existing customers will be able to preorder the device beginning February 3, with sales expanding to new customers a week later, on February 10.
Verizon Wireless fulfilled a dream four years in the making for many on Tuesday morning by announcing that the carrier will finally offer the iPhone. Verizon President and COO Lowell McAdam took the stage this morning in New York City to finally lay the rumors to rest.
It’s Tuesday, January 11 and that means Verizon executives will be taking the stage in New York City to announce the iPhone has finally arrived on the carrier after years of speculation and rumors. The question now is, how will AT&T respond?
AT&T must be fairly certain that Verizon is announcing that they’re getting the iPhone on Tuesday, judging from how the two carriers have been verbally sparring like kids on a schoolyard in the last few days.
With the ubiquitous presence of iPhone and iPads in the lives of Apple aficionados, one no longer even needs their trusty Mac to get online these days. Where iOS devices are concerned, there are a pair of Apple branded solutions -- MobileMe or manually syncing your device with iTunes -- that will allow intrepid internet explorers (see what we did there?), to ensure that they’ve easy access to all of the bookmarks they enjoy when using their Mac’s Safari internet browser.
But what if you prefer to a rock computer-side browser other than Safari, or refuse to spring for a MobileMe subscription? Don’t fret: the iTunes App Store has some great solutions to keep your browsing experience synchronized no matter what device you happen to be using.
Despite a volley of 4G-related announcements at the Consumer Electronics Show this past week, Verizon Wireless apparently decided to tap into the spirit of Steve Jobs himself for “one last thing.” On Friday, invitations went out for a special event on Tuesday, January 11 that is widely expected to bring the iPhone to a second U.S. carrier after nearly four years.
As we all wait patiently for Tuesday’s announcement from Verizon, additional details have surfaced over the weekend which indicate the carrier could offer unlimited data plans on the iPhone -- all while pulling up to 6.5 million customers away from rival AT&T.
