Only a matter of time before Verizon begins selling the iPhone. AT&T reduced the time commitment for a new phone upgrade, allowing them to lock in over 1M customers into a 2 year agreement at a higher cancellation penalty. While it seemed customer friendly, a very brilliant move by AT&T to get customers on the new contract, extended longer, and higher money if contract voided. Verizon to Start Selling iPhone in January [REPORT].
While reading an article about 100 facts about Steve Jobs and Apple, I ran across a parody link for Steve Jobs (Steve Jobs ceoSteveJobs on Twitter). I included some of the 100 Facts that I found interesting from the 100 facts below.
I can remember my parents and their Apple IIe, with the large floppy, flipping it over, and Print Shop, with Banner Sheet Paper! Amazing how things have changed from a technology stand point. Apple employees all receiving an iPhone in 2007 (wow), salary of $1, only 6 Board of Directors (including Al Gore), and income from Disney stock at $48M a year. While the salary is only a $1, the perks of the company far outweigh the measurement of such.
Highlights of the 100 Facts -
Thanks to Mashable (yet again), more information on the iPhone rumor for Verizon, as the exclusivity agreement with AT&T sunsets. Have to wonder, what this will mean for the iPhone sales over the next 5 months, for people debating on changing? How many will change back? Was the increase in the early cancellation gearing up for higher end phone releases? Why the release in June, when AT&T typically releases, and Apple does OS upgrades. A lot of questions, more to come! Would Daniel have stayed with Verizon knowing this now? (ha)
The clarity of calls, and coverage of voice is superior on Verizon, but where I live, the data works.
Solution to the bad coverage in NYC? Stop selling the device? The same phone that had very successful launches in the NYC area throughout the history of the phone. Interesting “Report” about the residents no longer being able to order.
While the coverage in areas is poor compared to Verizon, living in Atlanta, I have not had any challenge with fast download speeds, but a few dropped calls. I use the phone more for the data then the voice, it fits my needs.? The technology still trumps my clunky Blackberry Bold.
