Verizon iPhone 4 Announced

Free at last! Free at last! At a press event this morning Verizon President and COO Lowell McAdam joined Apple COO Tim Cook to make the much-anticipated announcement to offer the iPhone 4 starting next month. For years iPhone users have been criticizing the lackluster service offered by AT&T.

While no carrier is perfect, thousands of angry AT&T users have been eagerly awaiting this day and are ready to jump ship. Even The Woz wants one.

During the announcement, McAdam discussed the reliability of Verizon’s network and ability to support data.

Hopefully this competition will lead to better service and pricing from AT&T (we agree with The Woz: competition is good). We should note that not all of AT&T’s customer service issues (upgrade options) are their fault. They do stem from the tight contract they have with Apple. It should be interesting to see if Verizon will suffer from some of the same problems.
