Verizon and iPhone
I'd bet that this Businessweek article (claiming that Verizon is still serious about selling the iPhone) is 100% wrong. My guess is that there are a lot of potential iPhone customers who are unwilling to switch to AT&T (and would prefer Verizon's service). And that Verizon is dangling the idea of the iPhone on Verizon to keep them in limbo and waiting until the iPhone's allure wears off (or technology shifts such that Verizon can sell the iPhone because we are all on 4G). A statement to the press is nearly free (and a lot cheaper than advertising).
