Take this with a grain of salt, but a new report out of Taiwan claims that Apple has raised their global shipment goal for the iPhone from 19 million units in the first quarter of 2011 to 20-21 million units, which could include the fabled Verizon model.
If you thought that Verizon was just going to prop the iPad up with their other offerings and leave it at that, think again -- the telco has just released their first commercial touting the magic combo of the iPad with MiFi.
We told you about it earlier this month, and the day has finally arrived: The iPad is now available for sale at both Verizon Wireless (coupled with a MiFi 2200) and AT&T (where it uses the native 3G data plan).
After Apple announced that 14.1 million more iPhones entered the world in their last fiscal quarter of 2010, it’s only natural for the speculation to turn back to the mythical Verizon iPhone -- which may actually exist and getting put through field tests right now.
The iPad invasion has taken an interesting turn this week; after spreading to Target and Wal-Mart stores, the device is landing in the most unlikely of places: Verizon Wireless stores nationwide. Although the deal gets Verizon in bed with Apple, it’s not quite what you might expect.
Forgive us for not being entirely objective, but we let out a large groan when we read this headline. Verizon CEO Ivan Seidenberg hinted at a recent Goldman Sachs conference that we shouldn't bet on the possibility of a Verizon version of the iPhone any time soon.
While the world waits and wonders if a Verizon iPhone even exists -- a game we’ve been playing since 2007 when the device first launched -- a new survey suggests that AT&T might have less to worry about from losing its exclusivity than previously thought.
More and more, the rumors surrounding the next wave of Apple products become truer and truer. Or, at least, we hope they are, because there are too many rumors to speak of and not enough truth oozing out from the seams. Allegedly, Apple is set to launch an upgraded 9.7-inch iPad with an ARM Cortex-A9 processor--an upgrade to the current processor contained in the recent iterations of the tablet device. Additionally, it is speculated that the device will have a 1024x768 IPS display panel.
Stop us if you’ve heard this one before: Apple’s iPhone is finally coming to Verizon Wireless, ending years of oppressive exclusivity with AT&T and its less than popular wireless network. Except this time, there appears to be some concrete evidence to support the claim, rather than just the word of analysts on Wall Street.
If Bloomberg's got it right, and they often do, all signs point to Verizon and AT&T are pairing up in an effort to displace much of the the need for credit cards in the retail universe by allowing consumers to pay for their purchaes with the wave of their smartphone. According to the report, the venture also includes the cooperation of some other financial sector and telecom heavy-hitters, including T-mobile, Deutsche Telecom and Discover Financial Services.
