Yesterday the internet ran a muck with talks about Verizon CEO Ivan Seidenberg having said that he has told Apple that Verizon wants the iPhone. Does this really come as a surprise, really? The iPhone has brought consumers to AT&T and helped their subscriber count tremendously, too bad the same can’t be said about their network. From day one Verizon has paraded their latest smartphone as a superior replacement to the iPhone, yet none of them have been able to bring consumers to Verizon the way the iPhone has for AT&T. (With the exception of the Motorola Droid, but still not at iPhone levels) So does it really surprise anyone at all that Verizon has told Apple they want the iPhone?
If you are a Verizon subscriber this is welcome news, Verizon has publicly stated they want the iPhone. Now time will tell if Apple is willing to step up and meet the request.
