- It goes on sale Feb. 10 at Verizon and Apple stores. Verizon customers have the advantage to pre-order on Feb. 3.
- Same prices as AT&T's iPhone 4: $199 for the 16 GB and $299 for 32 GB of storage
- Unlike AT&T's version, Verizon iPhone 4 users will not be able to talk and surf the web at the same time. That's going to be a huge setback to getting customers to switch from AT&T.
- It's not using Verizon's new 4G network.
- You can make it a 3G mobile hotspot to share Internet connection with up to 5 other devices.
- Verizon didn't reveal what data plan prices would be for the iPhone. Currently, Verizon sells an unlimited data plan for smartphones for $30, but is not saying if that will be available for the iPhone 4. (AT&T no longer offers an unlimited data plan.)
So there's the perk of using it as a hotspot without jailbreaking it, yet it won't do data + calling at the same time, as we've all been used to on AT&T. (Not to mention doing web surfing while on a call is what the commercials always promote, so this might be misleading to customers who walk in Verizon's door expecting the same thing.)
With Verizon's hesitation about revealing data plan prices, I'm putting my bets on it being the end of unlimited.
