Verizon announces first LTE handset - the Apple iPhone Landscape LTE

Verizon announces first LTE handset - the Apple iPhone Landscape LTE
Well guys, it's been a long time coming, but believe it or not, it's finally here. Verizon has officially announced the upcoming availability of the iPhone in its lineup. But wait, it seems like this won't be just a CDMA version of the well-known smartphone. It will be the carrier's first ever LTE handset, and the company has also revealed that its variant will have a completely different design than what we've seen previously. The new design language is said to bring a whole new user experience to the customers. Prepare to meet the iPhone Landscape LTE edition! Completely identical in the specs part, the iPhone Landscape LTE will have... um, a landscape-oriented form-factor and interface, and of course will be able to take full advantage of the App Store. A Verizon spokesperson has admitted that they have always envied AT&T for the number of apps they can offer to their customers.

But this has finally come to an end. If everything goes according to plan, in a few months every Verizon user will be able to enjoy Doodle Jump (in landscape orientation), and actually surf the internet with blazing-fast LTE speeds!

(Note from the editor: The iPhone Landscape LTE, just like the iPhone 3GS, will not support multitasking, battery replacement or Bluetooth file transfer.)

It's sad that the only news phone arena can post is stupid april fools jokes. Everything else is just recycled news from the day before. I have a sense of humor...but with all of the rumors flying, I just don't think such nonsense should be posted. Even one fake would've been ok, but this is 3 before dawn. Is this going to go on all day? If so, at least don't tag the shit so my email is cluttered with the nonsense.

If they said... Phone will not incorporte v cast and a standard vzw ui. I would say it could be legit. But this is definite April fool. You know verizon will force a $60 a month 2gb limit on a what they like to call "island of misfit toys" phone. Remember verizon/droid fanboys,,, I'm sure apple will ,, how much trash verizon talked about the iPhone. If I were Steve I wouldn't even give verizon the pleasure of selling my product. I would say verizon go screw yourself and your customers.(something their good at: can we say "forced 20mb data plan":).. Cause I don't need your money.

for you my friend -1.... if you were steve jobs you would get it to verizon's 90mil plus customers. More devices sold on apples end. And for that data plan, the two major wireless companys (att and verizon) are implamenting the data plan for "3g or multimedia messaging phones". In that case should apple stop selling it to att becuase of that data plan?

From what i see from the original comment was a Verizon bash which is ok either way by me. If you were adding to the april-foolness of this post then by all means elaborate. Anyway, it is about time they move that phone off the garbage service that is AT&T. I had the iPhone and left for the Motorola Droid because of service. I consider myself to be an Apple Fanboy, but i just can no longer get behind AT&T. If you were attempting to be funny via your comment, please hang up and try again.
