Verizon CEO says he sold Steve Jobs on LTE for iPhone 5
While talking at the National Association of Broadcasters (NAB) show in Las Vegas, Verizon CEO Lowell McAdam claimed to have been the man responsible for convincing Steve Jobs to go 4G LTE on the iPhone 5. Sue Merek at Fierce Wireless reports:
It's hard to imagine Apple not going 4G LTE with the iPhone 5, given the "right" chipset was available at the time. Apple planning on doing something certainly doesn't preclude Verizon from pitching it as well.
Either way, the most interesting part of this story to me is Jobs going right for the Jerry McGuire riff. Show him the network, McAdam. Show. Him. The. Network.
