iPhone for Verizon Officially Announced!

Last week, we talked about the imminent arrival of the iPhone onto Verizon Wireless and how it would probably be announced shortly. Well, as it turns out, “shortly” was just around the corner. According to an article featured in our sister site iPhone-Developers.com, the announcement was done today and Verizon came out claiming that they are prepared to handle the increased data load that forced AT&T to cut back on data plans for their customers. We have no doubt that the “Big Red” has probably prepared extensively for this release as it has been rumored for quite some time, indicating that this has been in the works for at least as long as the rumors have been around.

It’s been dreamed of by many and talked about for years, but today it is officially here — the Verizon iPhone 4.

Available on verizon wirless starting next month, the CDMA iPhone 4 is mostly the same as its GSM brethren, with the special exception that it runs exclusively on Verizon’s network. Verizon CEO Lowell Macadam has promised that their network will be able to handle the load, and should that prove true the Verizon iPhone 4 experience may be far superior to the one that millions of AT&T users are currently used to.

Do you think that Verizon is ready to handle a potential spill over of thousands of free agents (contract free customers) from AT&T? What are your thoughts now that Verizon has incorporated a non-4G device to their line up and that they are trying to boost sales of their 4G phones? Please leave your comments.

You can find more information in the original iphone-developers article.

Sunday Debate: Are Smaller Bezels Better or Worth It?

Bezels have been getting smaller and smaller as the years go by, and while devices from 2011 needed to trim some fat, there is no absolute rule that says that smaller bezels, after a happy medium, are beneficial to a phone. Part of this is that, with today’s current smartphone paradigms, an absolute lack of bezels does not produce an inherently better user experience.   With each technological advancement come limitations and compromises of some sort, and bezels are not...
