Verizon: No iPhone On T-Mobile and Sprint – Pays Apple

News on the collaboration of Verizon and Apple’s iPhone has been hot news in and around the internet, and as Cnet reported in order to keep that important exclusivity, Verizon may be paying Apple to stop them from being tempted into the arms of other carriers, such as T-Mobile and Sprint.

AppleInsider reported that Shaw Wu, Analyst for Kaufman Bros, has said that with the big emphasis on Verizon and neighbouring network AT&T, it seems that they are at the mercy of tech giants Apple. We all know how well the iPhone 4 has been storming the mobile market, and the next-gen iPhone 5 is bound to do the same in leaps and bounds, but is it something that Verizon and Apple will agree on and it begs the question, can they actually do this, is this against business regulation?

Added to this, Wu has commented that the big red believe that coupled with iPhone’s existing sales and multi-touch gestures currently being offered, BlackBerry 6 operating system will struggle to contend with this.

Apple’s forthcoming iPhone 5 may be rumored to look the same in appearance to it’s predecessor, but it’s what’s inside that we need to focus on, with a Qualcomm CDMA chip, and with news today that a possible Pico Projector plus Mobile Live TV on the cards, there seems a lot to look forward to.

What are your thoughts on this? If this news turns out to be more than just speculation, how would you feel about T-Mobile and Sprint being out of the equation? Let us know. To find out more head on over to AppleInsider.
