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?
