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.

When iPhone 4 was released it didn't have 4G while other phones out at the time did (Sprint's Evo).

Now they come out with a Verizon version that is exactly the same which means its now even more behind.

Not really an issue for me, since 4G (at least on Verizon) is ridiculously expensive, and 3g currently does everything I need it to do. If I can view Google Maps and stream Slacker radio (which I can on 3g), I'm pretty happy.
