Today Apple and Verizon announced the release of the CDMA version of the iPhone 4.
All in all, if you think AT&T network really sucks and you are one of those tethering freaks who doesn’t mind the few drawbacks then the Verizon iPhone is a good fit for you.

Finally! After the long grueling wait(years in fact) the iPhone is now available on big red.
However, as AppleGirl has mentioned there are quite a number of drawbacks that you will need to evaluate before switching to big red if you wish.
Yes, tethering is supported on the Verizon’s version, but is that more important than being able to surf and talk at the same time? I agree with AppleGirl on this one, it’s a big ouch! As for bragging rights, I’m actually tired of bragging about being able to tether. This is old news for us Android users, we’ll move onto bragging about dual core phones and fingerprint scanners on our phone (more to come on this, I’m referring to the Motorola Atrix 4G).
Not to mention, Verizon is coming out with their LTE network, but thanks to Steve Jobs, iPhone users are going to be left behind since Apple doesn’t like to adapt to “newer” (not proven according to Jobs) technologies. Again, think about a dual core processor phone utilizing the 4G speed, this is the future, taking the power of smartphones to a new level. Hmm, AppleGirl sounds like the Android trajectory will just go uphill 😉
In fact, I’m really happy that the iPhone is going to Verizon. Now that AT&T is no longer the exclusive carrier it looks like they’re finally improving their Android line. In fact the Motorola Atrix 4G is heading to them!
For all you die hard Apple fans, check out the chart below from Engadget. It’s food for thought before you lock yourself down one way or another.
