AT&T takes opening shot at Verizon iPhone

The Verizon iPhone has not been officially announced yet but that has not stopped AT&T firing the first shot at a CDMA iPhone.  According to a report by Business Insider, AT&T PR boss Larry Solomon has risen to the challenge and come out with the following statement:

The iPhone is built for speed, but that's not what you get with a CDMA phone. I'm not sure iPhone users are ready for life in the slow lane. AT&T’s GSM technology is faster than Verizon’s CDMA technology.

With this statement, AT&T have not only added their confirmation to the Verizon iPhone launch rumors but have shown what kind of battle we might be in for. The question is, will this launch a price war between the two networks, or just a war of words?
