Verizon and Apple Won’t Partner This Year

Everyone who was excited about the alleged impending partnership of Apple and Verizon will be disappointed to hear this: Apple and Verizon will most likely not be teaming up to release a 4G version of the iPhone this year. The evidence for this? Apple has extended its exclusive iPhone contract with AT&T by six months.

This does not mean that Apple will not be releasing a 4G version of the iPhone with AT&T as the carrier. In fact, that is what many people are expecting. Apple often announces important things like that at its Worldwide Developers Conference each June. Apple would be foolish not to offer a 4G iPhone in the near future—some analysts have suggested that Apple is falling behind in the 4G market.

After the exclusive contract with AT&T ends, Apple should let other wireless companies carry the iPhone. It would be the smartest move on its part because there are many customers who would love to have iPhones but cannot due to not having AT&T.
