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.

A completely non teckie work colleague went to get a new phone the other day. She went to Orange in the UK. They carry iPhone, Android and Win Phone 7. She came back with a Win Phone 7. Why? Sales guy. She was told "No, you should get this one over the iPhone because it is newer." True. Subjective? At any rate, when this is the was average people make decisions, I'd say that the miniscule niche that we tech people live in is no real indication of which phone will do well. It's all word of mouth, what your friends have and general public reception. That is why iPhone still creams most other smart phones in the city of London.
