The Verizon iPhone is already the hot topic of the week. Every stone gets turned over to try to find evidence about AT&T loosing its iPhone exclusivity and making a Verizon iPhone a reality.
Analyst Steven Fox points our interest to a new SEC filing from AT&T that talks about the implications of upcoming expirations of exclusivity arrangements of devices. AT&T tries to calm fears of a huge dip in income.

AT&T does not mention the iPhone specifically, but it is of course the highest profile exclusivity deal on the table. More details on WSJ Blog. Via Apple Insider.

Last night I read the Wired magazine article "Bad Connection: Inside the iPhone Network Meltdown" (I know I am behind on my reading). It created definitely some form of compassion for AT&T. I even think that their problems will end as soon as the iPhone is also available on Verizon. It is just a matter of sharing the load iPhone users put on the carriers' networks.
