The problem is two fold. The first is that ATT is the only one allowed to sell 3G iPhones with Apple. The second is that LTE is going to take Verizon a while to get out there.
Mind you, I think Verizon Wireless could do more with what they have today. The sad reality is Verizon is still a more Apple friendly company than ATT when it comes to the USB dongles.
Verizon Wireless has Apple software and does not refer their customers to the device manufacturer. Personally, my Verizon MiFi works well with my MAC and the Verizon software is Apple friendly.
So what makes it so important that the iTablet be a Verizon exclusive, and what is the implication if the LTE network is only available in limited areas.
Verizon wants to stop the migration to the iPhone, but the question is does the iTablet represent the same market or a different market?
If Steve Jobs announces the iTablet in January what is foot print that VZW will be able to offer or will it have an EVDO to LTE upgrade offer embedded in the deal?
Should be interesting to see how the marketing moves.
