It’s an age-old debate — Blackberry vs. iPhone. It’s rare to see any of our favorite celebs without one of these devices in hand. Kim Kardashian is always Tweeting updates from her Blackberry, while Ashton Kutcher and Demi Moore (the king and queen of social networking junkies) always have their iPhones close by. Verizon announced today in NYC that their customers will be able to purchase the iPhone 4 beginning in February. Will Blackberry users make the switch? What does this mean for AT&T?
Verizon CEO Lowell MacAdam confirmed everyone’s suspicions today.
“If the press write something long enough, eventually it comes true,” MacAdam joked during the press conference, via the Huffington Post, as he introduced the iPhone 4, which drops at Verizon on Feb. 10.
Verizon customers can now purchase a 16GB Verizon iPhone for $199, according to Verizon’s Web site where you can pre-order the device.
Concerns about Verizon’s 3G network being able to handle the iPhone have run rampant on Twitter. Others seem to be ecstatic.
