Most of you know I've rhapsodized on the joys of my BlackBerry time and time again on this blog, while many of my friends have espoused the merits of their iPhones.
And while I've considered ditching my pink 'berry for a Motorola
DROID (the voice-activated navigation feature is awesome, by the way!), I've never even considered an iPhone. You'd have to pry me away from Verizon
Wireless, which I switched over from Sprint
in 2003 because it was the only network that wouldn't drop calls made while riding the Metro in Washington, D.C.
Still, I must grudgingly admit my ears perked up when I heard, on NPR this morning, that Verizon could very soon be carrying the iPhone.
According to an article published
by the Wall Street Journal, Apple
plans to begin producing this year a new iPhone that could allow U.S. phone carriers other than AT&T to sell the phone.
What's more, the new iPhone would work on CDMA, the network technology used by Verizon Wireless!
Could this really be true? I rushed into work this morning to make some calls - albeit, a bit distracted by personal thoughts like, "should I switch to the iPhone after all?" -- to Verizon, AT&T and Apple a few minutes ago.
