Verizon turning to iPhone because Droid doesn't bring the subscribers?

Both AT&T and Verizon have now released their quarterly earning statements, and it turns out AT&T (driven primarily by 5.2 million iPhone activations) signed up 2.6 million net subscribers to Verizon's 0.9 million.

So Droid doesn't bring subscribers the way iPhone 4 does? That's actually terrific news because Verizon in a position of power is not something any Android or iPhone lover would want to see. Perhaps this will encourage Big Red to let Droid be a little more Android. No doubt it's what's encouraging them towards a Verizon iPhone 4 in 2011, right?

Apple did sell
