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.

Haha - yeah, I know what he/she meant ;-)

I think most companies, regardless of size or industry, or current market share within said industry, would jump at the opportunity to be in a "monopolistic position."

It just seemed a little disingenuous to even bother using the term "monopolistic tendencies" - you might as well say "two large companies who each independently would love to dominate the industry they compete in".
