When it comes to their 3G network, they have certainly been "talking the talk" lately. But, if and when Apple and the iPhone come calling, Verizon feels that their network will also be able to "walk the walk."
Sadly for Apple’s domestic partner, AT&T, the first round in a legal battle with Verizon Wireless over their “There’s a map for that” ads is a defeat. A Federal judge in Atlanta declined to grant AT&T a temporary restraining order in an effort to force Verizon to stop showing the ads.
While chipmalker Qualcomm would love to have something up and running
that Apple could put in their phones ready for Verizon's CDMA network
and AT&T's UMTS network, an industry analyst says "not so fast."
Depending on where you live and work, it can seem like the
Internet is everywhere. But sadly, a good Wi-Fi signal can be lacking
when you need it most--and the days of open home–Wi-Fi networks are
mostly gone, as even your mom has figured out how to lock down her
network. But with Verizon’s MiFi in your pocket, you can access the
Internet from just about anywhere.
