Final Thoughts on a Verizon iPhone

At the moment I am writing this, we are less than an hour away from what everyone is assuming is going to be the official announcement of the iPhone coming to Verizon wireless. I have been telling all of my friends and everyone I know who has been constantly asking me over the last few years if the iPhone were coming to Verizon that it will only be coming when it is official. It will only be official when either Apple or Verizon make the announcement, rather than anonymous sources of major publications. That being said, I believe strongly that this is going to be it, but it may be a less than thrilling announcement.

If the phone were going to be at all different, then it would be an Apple event, and not a Verizon one. My guess is that this is announcing a Verizon version of the iPhone 4, running on EVDO Rev A. 3G. Sometime this summer, Apple will make the announcement of a newer iPhone that will run on Verizon’s 4G-LTE high speed network, possibly with a faster processor as well. Now I may be wrong about this, and I would be delighted if I were, as an iPhone running on the new 4G-LTE network would be really awesome.

So the big question for me is, how long should I wait, or should I even consider switching from Android, over to the iPhone platform. I’ve been saying all along that I can’t wait for the Verizon iPhone, but now that its arrival is imminent, I’ve been using a Droid for over a year now, mostly because Apple and Verizon took too long. we’ll see how much longer I hold out.

I’m going to sit back, play with the baby and await the announcement. Initial thoughts will follow immediately after the event.

Edit (10:26AM): The other thing I want to find out is if Verizon will end up with a Logo on the phone anywhere, which is something Verizon insists upon, and yet Apple hates with a passion. My Guess: Apple wins, only an apple logo, or if there is a Verizon logo, it’ll be on the back, and small.
