Verizon tells store managers that Wednesday is a big day
One of BGR's tipsters told them that Verizon opens each new quarter with a "kick off" event for store managers that covers new devices, plans, etc. This Wednesday will be a event for store managers with a live webcast that starts at 1pm EST. The question is-will this be an Apple related announcement? After all, we do have three potential things that we are watching for Wednesday. One is the potential debut of an Apple tablet. Two, an iPhone announcement that might be related to a fourth generation device or OS. And number 3, the possibility that AT&T's iPhone exclusivity expires on the same date. Our Magic 8 ball says, "Reply hazy, try again"

Hard to say they aren't related. But I have doubts.

Vzw subsidizes apple's tablet. That has to be bigger than them getting the iPhone sometime this year. I hope it's Vzw and the tablet, that way I can bypass apple stores and head straight to a Vzw location to mess w/ one.

all the tablet is, is a big iphone... so get Skype VOIP working and you have a monster iPhone that works with VZW... if any of this is true... but i will believe it when i see it.

Because what I want is to carry around a phone with a 10" display. Imagine that thing against your face when people were complaining about the HD2 being too big.

1) Probably the most likely. 2) Hope it happens, would be better if it was the iPhone 4G as in it runs on 4G network. 3) Almost guaranteed.

personally I could care less 1. I'm happy with my iphone 3gs 2. NEVER had any cell or network issues with ATT living here in socali 3. cant beat their pricing on family lines (compared to various carriers which CAN talk n surf the web at the same time)

Once again with the Talking and surfing bullsh#t. Get a life and find something else to make att sound better then vzw.

i just think its hilarious because before ATT started running those ads NO att customers bragged about being able to talk and surf the web simultaneously, actually i doubt many of them even knew they could do that. What you guys dont seem to realize is that talking and surfing (in the RARE case that youll be doing it) demishes both call quality and data speeds. so go ahead and brag but in reality its like someone braggin about eating and puking at the same time...either way youre not being that productive.

I agree talkin and surfing isn't something I do that often. But I'm a web junkie and I do it sometimes. But the biggest perk to that is calls aren't sent to voicemail when Im loading a page. Mms still gets sent when I get a call. And mms doesn't stop sending when I get an incoming text. So it is useful. And not to mention when I do surf and talk it doesn't diminish quality or speed. The reason it's possible is because 2 different cellular signals are being sent amd received(umts-voice and hspa-data) they don't come from the same signal Luke gsm and edge or CDMA and evdo. That's the whole reason it's only possible with AT&T and tmo.

Is is singlehandedly the most honest post ever on phonearena. I could only give it +1 but i really wanna give it +10. Droid is great. But aside from the better coverage it has nothing on iPhone. And in socal where at&ts coverage is only a little worse than vzw. that's not a big advantage.

Uhm, what if the answer is none of the above (I always pick that one on tests). I'm on my 3rd Droid due to handset issues and the store manager said to me, "...hold out for a few more days. We will have the TP2 in stores next week." That could one of them and the other, he mentioned they are coming out with another Android device, specifically referencing 2.1 software. Maybe that's it?

The worst thing the iphone did was go with ATT, i think the iphone is just amazing. But ATT is just awful, and it is costing the iphone and apple alot of customers. I left verizon for the iphone, might have to go back!

Iam sick of att customers saying (talk and surf the web at the same time) WTF who gives a shit and if i ever call someone and they tell me hold on i gotta check the score or something web related i would be like WTF call me when ur free and hang up on them, thats the only thing att has on verizon, its the LEAST IMPORTANT. Also lets all be honest here about the droid its a nice phone especially with verizon might be the best, but once verizon gets the iphone if they do, u guys will switch from ur droid to the iphone, i got BORED of my droid within 2 months its just very simple nothing special and its MOTOROLA calll quality sucks, people complain about not hearing me good and yes i had 3 of them its the PHONE just face it motorola sucks. Verizon has the best network thats why i still havent switched to ATT for the iphone even thought i hella want one.

Lets be honest... Most Android customers are pretty happy with their pick and wouldn't go for an IPhone. Its a toy. Its like the Samsung Jet, a really rich feature phone that wants to be a smart phone(IMO). I know I don't(pun intended) and never have wanted an IPhone. My Droid is perfect. And call quality... My wife has an IPhone and has more dropped calls than ever! That never happened when she had her Sony Ericsson or her Motorola Q. So please with the Droid users would switch to the IPhone if it comes to Verizon. That's just an IPhone fanboys wet dream.

Well to be honest i wasnt happy with it thats why i returned it, menu is way too simple, phone is ugly over all, the stupid lip gets in the way of physical keyboard texting, speaking of texting if you want to text really fast on the on screen keyboard, U CANT, because it doesnt catch up with you, if you do it really fast it will mess up, unlike the iphone the texting is very responsive and u can go as fast as you want, the task killer is annoying constantly have to close apps that i never opened in the first place, back cover comes off really easy especially if ur using a belt clip not a holster, should i go on? i get new phones as soon as they come out so i know what iam talking about, iam not saying the i phone is perfect, but alot of droid users have it caz the iphone is not avaialble on verizon right now, ONCE IT IS GAME ON.

why does it have to only be about apple when something "big" is expected to be talked about??? maybe it's the nexus one on verizon sooner than expected... maybe it's an early release of a windows 7 device... who knows but let's quit assuming that apple is gonna take over the world
