    Bigger News for Verizon Than Motorola’s Droid
    By fonefrenzy
    This weekend was chocked full of Verizon and Motorola news. Earlier this month, Verizon and Google had a joint news conference debuting the new Motorola Droid and announcing a partnership to leverage high-speed network and open Android platform for wireless innovation. Both Engadget and Boy Genius have reported about the upcoming Motorola Droid (which was formally known as the Sholes codename). And yesterday, Motorola released it’s first commercial of the Droid taking direct aim at Apple iPhone. What I have to share with you is bigger than any cell phone story all year.

    My sources have confirmed that Verizon’s CEO, Mr. Lowell McAdam, has flown into San Jose to visit Google’s headquarters in Mountain View, California for the last several months. The meetings have taken place approximately every two weeks and the reason for the visits was to make sure the production of the new Motorola handset was moving along smoothly. Something certainly expected for a phone with a game changing platform and design taking advantage of Verizon huge 3G coverage. This is all pretty exciting information but not the biggest news this weekend for Verizon.

    There is more to Motorola and Verizon anti-iPhone Campaign than meets the eye. While everyone was busy talking about or writing about the Verizon anti-iPhone campaing, few noticed that the commercials were not produced by Verizon, but Motorola.

    In a news report by Reuters over the weekend titled “Apple’s on a roll – iPhone sales pivotal” the story states, “In September, Apple reported sales of more than 30 million iPhones to date, which some analysts say translated into about 3.5 million so far for the quarter, meaning the company would have to pick up the pace to best the total from a year ago.”

    What do iPhone sales have to do with Verizon you ask? Well apparently, Mr. Lowell McAdam wasn’t just visiting Google on those trips to Mountain View, California. Apple headquarters is only 8.5 miles away from Google’s HQ.

    We all know that Verizon started testing their 4G network earlier this year and that Verizon plans to roll out their LTE network on the 700 MHz spectrum sometime next year.

    My sources have confirmed that Apple and Verizon have been testing a CDMA iPhone on Verizon’s 4G LTE network. Yes, you read that correctly, Verizon and Apple have been testing the first 4G phone on Verizon’s 4G network. The tests have been taking place for the last couple of months but with no confirmation on the release date. If you read the article by Reuters above, it would make good fiscal sense for Apple (and Verizon) to release the first CDMA iPhone right here in the United States running on Verizon’s new 4G network, with announcement expected in 2010 at Apple’s WWDC.

    Now here’s your coffee talk for Sunday: Verizon + iPhone + 4G LTE network. Go ahead, you know you want to have to scream.

    Happy Sunday and thanks for waiting for this story.
