TiPb on ABC 15 talking Verizon iPhone

Right before the Verizon iPhone announcement this morning Rene jumped on ABC 15 Arizona with Kirk Yuhnke to preview the event. Of course we all know how it turned out now but wouldn't it have been funny if he'd been spectacularly wrong and Verizon ended up announcing another Kin instead?!

Verizon to offer CDMA iPad 3G

Hot off the heels of the Verizon iPhone announcement comes a report that Verizon Wireless will soon be offering Apple's iPad with an embedded CDMA chip to better compete with AT&T. From Bloomberg:

Verizon will get an embedded chip in the iPad for use on its network, Francis Shammo, chief financial officer of Verizon Communications Inc., the parent of the wireless unit, said today in an interview in New York. IPad users currently need an extra device to connect to Verizon’s network.

Verizon iPhone running iOS 4.2.5

We were fairly certain the Verizon iPhone 4 would require a new version of iOS, sporting a new CDMA radio stack, and it seems it will -- iOS 4.2.5 (8E128).

Current GSM iPhones are on iOS 4.2.1 but it's currently unknown if they'll also get a bump to iOS 4.2.5 when the Verizon iPhone ships on February 10.

In addition to the CDMA radio, iOS 4.2.5 on Verizon will support the new mobile hot spot feature announced today, and while there's no word on whether or not that will remain exclusive to Verizon, no other carrier has announced it yet either.

AT&T has been prepping iPhone plan as Verizon now has an iPhone of their own

AT&T has been prepping a new advertisement plan to do what they can to keep people from switching to the Verizon iPhone. AT&T plans to focus its ads on the fact they say their network has faster 3G speeds and overall performs better than Verizon's network (not sure who they are fooling with that!).

More so than just advertising, AT&T has been taking other steps in preparation for this day of the lose of exclusivity. They have been investing in improvements to their highly criticized network as well as been promoting lower prices for older iPhone models and introducing Android and Windows Phone 7 devices.
