Verizon: We have the capacity to handle the iPhone

As part of the Verizon iPhone 4 announcement today, Dan Dee stressed that Verizon had been building out their network and scaling their infrastructure from retail to supply to... hopefully reception in order to handle the iPhone.

That should be good news for anyone in the US used to dropping iPhone calls. Then again, talk is cheap and the iPhone hits the network like rhino, so we'll have to see what happens when tens of millions of 3G devices are hammering your tower all at once.

Any guesses? Will Verizon hold up?
