PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless While everybody outside of the US has been able to mix and match iPhone and wireless operator, the iPhone was still tied to a single carrier in the US. Today, Verizon and Apple announced the much-hyped Verizon iPhone 4. While the rest of the world collectively yawns, this is good news for American consumers, since there will be more competition, and thus, more choice. Edit: Eh, the other way around. First choice, then competition.

I have to say, I thoroughly enjoy the coverage of this. Summarised:

"VERIZON IPHONE FIRST HANDS-ON! IT IS EXACTLY THE SAME AS EVERY OTHER IPHONE 4! EXCEPT IT CAN'T CALL AND RECEIVE DATA AT THE SAME TIME! WE ARE SO EXCITED!"

"AT&T IPHONE 4 VS. VERIZON IPHONE 4: WHAT'S CHANGED? ABSOLUTELY NOTHING."

I didn't even have to change this one:

"VERIZON'S IPHONE 4 HAS A CDMA-SPECIFIC ANTENNA, NO OTHER CHANGES MADE."
