Re: You can forget about the iphone on Verizon now.
Your fanboy-ism over the Iphone really needs to take a back seat for awhile. The Iphone was a tremendous success in 2007, 2008, and most of 2009. It's OLD news now. Google (notice I say Google and NOT VERIZON) is the new player in town. The specs on the Nexus One completely destroy that of the Iphone. The Iphone is not obsolete by any means and will continue to get it's upgraded software, but it's stale, it needs a refresh. Apple will no doubt refresh the Iphone to something nice, but it's once unequivocal nature is coming to an end. People like choices and once again, google is providing them with that.
And if you browse the net at all and read tech forums, not everyone has been drinking the Iphone KoolAid. People are getting frustrated with the network it's on, and unfortunately, network has a lot to do with user experience. I know plenty of people who have switched out of the Iphone into the Droids are just as happy, if not more so because of 3g coverage, just like I'm sure the opposite is true.
And lastly, stop putting going on like you know the companies financial impact of certain handsets, because to an educated person you simply sound idiotic. With the cost of the device and marketing, Verizon is still profiting from sales of the DROID and I'd be willing to bet much more per unit than sales of the Iphone. Trust me when I say, Verizon knows how to run their business, regardless of what any fanboy has to say (The same can also be said for AT&T and TMobile and probably Sprint, although one tends to question them sometimes, but they are looking better as time goes by)
