The news that all of us with Verizon but without iPhones have been waiting for was just made official at a press conference today by Verizon and Apple: The iPhone 4 is coming to Verizon. And soon!
Verizon announced that the iPhone 4 will be available on the Verizon network starting February 10, and existing Verizon customers can pre-order beginning February 3. The phone will cost $200 with a two-year contract, which I'm already used to signing every time I get a new phone. STOKED!
I realize I, like a bazillion others, could completely crash Verizon's system by running to get the iPhone on February 10. But this is one trend I'm going to be right on top of from the start. No matter what kind of havoc it causes the cell phone industry.
Here are five reasons why:
- No more iPhone envy
- Now I can finally bone up on those touch screen skills I'm sorely missing
- No more relying on my crappy GPS when I get lost in LA (like, every other day)
- No more choosing between locking my BlackBerry up like Ft. Knox or pocket dialing everyone I know
- Soon I will be able to join the ranks of the Apple enthusiasts/Apple complainers as soon as something goes wrong on my new iPhone, but I look really cool anyway
Are you getting a new iPhone with Verizon?
