“Be glad that Verizon Wireless isn’t getting the iPhone anytime soon – it’s the best thing that could happen for all of us,” Kevin Maney writes for Appolicious.
“Of course, it may not seem like the best thing for you, individually,” Maney writes. “You probably want the best smart phone (arguably Apple’s iPhone) on the best U.S. network (Verizon’s) – not the best smart phone on a so-so network or a so-so smart phone on the best network.”
Maney writes, “And yet, this is for the collective good. If Verizon had gotten the iPhone much earlier, the entire smart phone milieu would not be as vibrant as it is. If Verizon gets the iPhone now, the market won’t be all it could be… Eventually, the iPhone will no doubt wind up on Verizon. But, hopefully not for another year or so. Let the competitive market do a little more work to make the phones and networks better. We’ll all benefit.”
