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.

Well, something big is happening you know...

No longer will Apple fanatics be able to invoke arguments of the form "Well, iOS's market share is doing pretty well when you consider that only one carrier in the US is selling one single device featuring it".

That's HUGE !!!

(Well, in practice they'll just truncate the sentence to "iOS's market share is doing pretty well considering that only one device is featuring it", but we can dream right ?)
