Comments from Verizon Communications CEO Ivan Seidenberg on Thursday left little room for the possibility of a Verizon version of the iPhone any time soon, Associated Press reported.
Speaking at an investors’ conference, Seidenberg said nothing about an iPhone for the company’s current network, AP wrote.
Instead, he hopes Apple will come around and allow Verizon to sell the phone for a new network it is building. The “4G” network hasn’t yet opened for service and won’t be complete next year, AP reported.
So, it looks like AT&T’s exclusive right to sell the iPhone in the U.S. will endure for awhile, despite rumors to the contrary.
Are you disappointed or not?
Would you get the iPhone if Verizon had it? Will you switch to AT&T when your contract expires now that Verizon appears out of the game in the short-run?
If you’re an AT&T customer, have you noticed an improvement in the network lately or not?
Finally, do you agree with the Verizon CEO when he said: “We don’t feel like we have an iPhone deficit?”
