    Sucks. Guess I can always hope that by immediate future he means this summer. Who knows what his definition is.

    But even I've said it won't be this summer. This fall at the absolute earliest and more likely early next year to summer of next year.

    Either way, it makes sense that if the phone is a few months to a year or more off that they are going to agressively push Android. Especially if a deal isn't final.

    No surprises here. Apple is probably only sticking to GSM for their phones until LTE is around in enough markets. It may be possible that the iPhone will come to T-Mobile, but I doubt that too.

    But then what about the rumors that verizon is testing ipads on their network?

    That leads me to believe iphones on verizon isn't SO far fetched after all...

    if the rumor is true...

    Holdup!

    1 question:

    1) How in the french would this old guy know?!?!


    I think the iPhone is not coming, not because of this guy, but because the Droid is more successful than the iPhone....

    The 32.8% marketshare the iPhone holds would say otherwise. (Android has 6.2%)

    I was trying to think of what it would take for me to stop hoping for a Verizon iPhone. I started thinking perhaps if AT&T got their network in better shape, but AT&T will be late to the game w/ LTE and I just don't think HSPA+ is going to do much real-world.

    With the rollout of LTE it'll just get more heated.

    As a longtime Verizon customer who really wants an iPhone.... :(

    I'd totally go for an Andriod device, but I'm kind of anti-Google on principle. All I know is my crappy little Blackberry Storm just isn't cutting it anymore.

    True, I wonder if they will build up LTE as fast as Verizon or if they will do something like Tmobile where they want to max out 3G speeds up to 21MB?
