verizon iphone[tweetmeme source=”equalman” only_single=false http://socialnomics.net/%5DNew York City: Verizon and Apple announced the launch of the long-awaited Verizon iPhone 4 at their press conference. Here are some of the more interesting tidbits:

  • Available Feb 10
  • Available Feb 3 for Verizon customers
  • CDMA rather than GSM (AT&T)
  • White iPhone 4 expected
  • Compatible with hot spots allow for tethering
  • Estimate shipping 9 million units in 2011

Apple COO Tim Cook alluded to the reason for iPhone 4 being on CDMA rather than on the much faster LTE (type of 4G):

The first generation LTE chipsets force some design compromises. Some of which we would not make. ” – Apple COO Tim Cook

The other reason Apple is bringing a CDMA iPhone 4  first: “Verizon customers have told us they want the iPhone NOW,” said Cook.

The price of the phone and service are similar, if not the same, as AT&T.  Expect social media usage to only increase from mobile devices now that the much-anticipated Verizon iPhone is finally a reality.verizon white iphone
