Verizon iPhone to be a better handset than ATandT iPhone. Verizon iPhone has new antenna, different side buttons, and old cases might not fit
The Verizon iPhone 4 is at the centre of attraction. This is not for the first time that it has grabbed the media’s attention. Since the launch of the iPhone it has been in the news. Initially, it was reported that the device would come on Verizon Wireless, America’s leading phone carrier.
However, for more than one year users were made to wait. The story surfaced so many times that a large number of people thought it as a rumor. To some extent they were right. But things only changed this year when reports surfaced about an exclusive meet by Verizon.
It was during this event that the launch of Verizon iPhone4 was announced. Since then it has been doing the rounds.
Besides, the die-hard fans of Verizon are also eager to know how it will look. Is it going to be different from the one that is circulated at AT&T? This and other questions are being debated in the industry. According to industry insiders, it is the same iPhone 4 as the model sold at AT&T.
The only slight difference is that this one doesn’t sport a different antenna. Besides, its side buttons have been moved down ever so slightly. All these minor changes don’t make it different from the actual phone. Industry insiders are of the opinion that the performance of the device may not change. The slight changes were only made to accommodate internal changes so the
iPhone 4 could run on Verizon's CDMA 3G network. All said, the change in button means that people who possess iPhone will have some problems. The most important one is for only users who switch from AT&T to Verizon. These people will be unable to re-use many of their old iPhone 4 cases and bumpers.
Other than that users will have no problem. If you are one of the fans of Verizon iPhone then get ready to lay your hands on the device that is going to hit retail on February 10. The prices start at $199.99.
