    Verizons 1.11.11 event

    Verizon plans special event next week - iPhone time!? - Jan. 7, 2011

    It seems more and more possible that the iPhone is coming to Verizon. Personally, I hope so as Verizon gives us the best coverage for our family. I know the wife will want one, but I am thinking about getting one too. We each use BB and love them ... any other insight to the 1.11.11 event for Verizon?

    The iphone is coming, but they have done a great job keeping it quiet. My wife has the old iphone 3g (not the 3gs), and it is brutally slow. She needs a new one, but ATT sucks in DSM. I get 3g everywhere on verizon, she is about 50/50 on ATT.

    Get ready for extra add on costs though. They'll charge you for "4g" and then I wouldnt be surprised if this is the start of charging per data usage. IMO this is a sad day for Android users. I think a lot of people will drop their Droids just for the iPhone.

    Nahhh, the only thing the iphone offers that droid does not is itunes compatibility. If you are not an itunes use, the iphone offers nothing.

    why do people care so much what others use. its like the old chevy vs ford thing. I never understood it. I have an iphone but I could give two ***** if the rest of the world uses one or not. Enough have to use it to have them keep developing it and its apps but beyond that, big deal. why do so many people have a personal emotional investment into which company does better? serious question.

    I was in Verizon around Christmas and was talking to the salesman about the Iphone. He said that they haven't even said anything to the employees about it or when they were going to try and release it. He said that he just heard through the grapevine that it was going to come out in January. Now, he coulda just been feedin me a line of crap. If true, they have done a great job of keeping it really hush hush.

    Re: Verizons 1.11.11 event

    I always thought I wanted an iphone until I got my droid 2. I love it and after trying to help my mother set up her ipad I don't think I want to have anything to do with it.

    Re: Verizons 1.11.11 event

    having used both systems... android > iOS.

    be interesting to see what if any specs apple's upgraded the iphone with for the verizon edition..a whole bunch of new droid phones just released with very nice specs. Apple has really rested on their laurels with the iphone, and its allowed android phones to catch and surpass them. Without this being a major upgrade over the iphone 4, the current generation of android phones will be superior in hardware and software.

    I heard that apple has sent notice for everyone to be working Feb. 3 - Feb. 6. My guess is they are announcing the release of the Iphone on Feb. 3.
