Verizon customers, you can trash your Droid on Feb 3. 3am. Verizon will open the pre-sale for the Verizon iPhone 4 on Feb. 3 at 3am EST in the morning. Verizon has published a countdown page for the iPhone 4 pre-sale here.
The general release of the Verizon iPhone is on Feb. 10. I am actually quite excited to see what happens. Is the hype that iPhone fans have been waiting for a Verzion iPhone real or just a fad. Has Android risen to the top, just because the iPhone was not available at Verizon? Will Android customers leave in droves?
My prediction is actually that not much will happen. As said before, why lock yourself into a new 2-year iPhone 4 contract, when a new iPhone 5 is expected in a couple of months?
The real picture on how much more (or not) consumers favor Verizon over AT&T will be at the iPhone 5 launch. I expect Apple to launch the iPhone 5 on Verizon and AT&T at the same time. Which carrier will sell more iPhone 5 devices? What do you think?

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
