The iPhone Comes to Verizon!Posted January 11, 2011 | | Tips and Trends from the Experts
The iPhone Comes to Verizon
Are you on the nation’s number one cellular service network? If so, then you have probably already heard that the rumors are officially true: the iPhone has come to Verizon at long last. After months of speculation and delays, Verizon and Apple officially announced their partnership at a press conference earlier today. Without regurgitating too much information from other articles, here’s the skinny on the deal:
Current Verizon customers will be able to pre-order their iPhones early next month, February 3, and new customers can purchase their handsets the following week, February 10. By adding the iPhone to their robust repertoire of smartphones that already includes the “iPhone-killing” DROID series by Motorola, Verizon will extend their market dominance further. The Verizon iPhone will vary from the AT&T model minimally, mainly to accommodate the proprietary hardware necessary to access the Verizon network. The slight variance does manage to render most cases currently available for the iPhone 4 obsolete, however. The cell pricing plans will be the same as other carriers: $199 for the 16GB model, $299 for the 32GB model.

As an extremely satisfied owner of a first-gen Motorola Droid, news of the iPhone coming to Verizon does not affect me as much as it does other people, but I am still very excited to hear that Apple is expanding their business partnerships.
With Verizon getting the iPhone, that means a whole new crop of consumers will need cell phone accessories.

A new trend in promotional products are cell phone holders, which serve as a convenient place to keep your phone at work or at home. InkHead carries several different types, but one of our most popular is the Foyer Desktop Cell Phone Holder, which is pictured below.
