Here’s something that will blow you’re mind – that is if you’re not a full Apple enthusiast, considering those mentioned people have probably been expecting it and will be the least surprised to hear that the iPhone is one of two smartphones to remain in the list of top 20
The hype surrounding the upcoming Nexus One (aka Google Phone) in the past few months was palpable, with many saying it was going to be the ultimate Android device, free of influence from meddling hardware makers and sold with an exciting new business model. Now that some have seen it, they say that while it's still a great device, it's not the iPhone-killer everyone made it out to be.
Today Verizon let the world know that it doesn't really care about the iPhone being exclusive to AT&T, stating that "Exclusivity arrangements promote competition and innovation in device development and design." The statement was made in a letter announcing Verizon's plans to allow smaller carriers (with 500,000 customers or less) to get exclusive Verizon phones six months after they're released. Although Verizon didn't come right out and say it, reading between the lines you get the impression that Verizon would rather hold out for the next "iPhone killer" than take the iPhone from AT&T.
