If you just returned from your local Apple or Verizon Wireless store with a shiny new iPhone 4 in your hand, you may be planning to buy a case next.

No sooner does Verizon post its own commercial celebrating the imminent arrival of the iPhone 4 on their network than Apple plays the great equalizer, releasing a spot which makes it all about the handset and not the carrier.
