Hi Bryan Here…
Here with a little bit of tech news for you. Live from the Verizon Event, it seems that Verizon will be carrying the Iphones starting very soon.
It looks like they will be Available Feb 10th. $199 for 16GB, $299 for 32GB. Plus it will act as mobile hotspot for up to five devices.
This must be scaring AT&T, but if you own Iphones then you are probably wanting better service as far as phones go. Only thing I hope, is that there still will be an unlimited data usage option.
Q: How many do you plan to make in the first quarter or year?
A: Cook: I’m not going to get into our forecast. But it’s a tremendous opportunity.
Q: Will it be on a yearly refresh cycle?
A: Cook: No comment.
Q: Why no LTE?
A: Cook: Two reasons – First, LTE chipsets force design changes we couldn’t make in the iPhone 4. Second, Verizon customers said they want the iPhone now.
Q: Is the CDMA version exclusive to Verizon?
A: Cook: It’s a multi-year deal, but non-exclusive.
Q: Did you change the antenna?
A: Cook: We’ve optimized things to work on CDMA, but I’m not commenting on anything beyond that.
Q: Simultaneous voice and data?
A: Cook: “It’s consistent with other CDMA devices now”, meaning no.
What do you think?
