How Verizon Half-Assed the iPhone 0

How Verizon Half-Assed the iPhone

So I was sitting in Houston, TX with Jake Luddington. I made this prediction (the night before the announcement) that the iPhone on Verizon was going to hit 40 million in the first 30-60 days. It was a stretch, but it was based on the masses who have been waiting patiently for the CDMA iphone, mixed with those 3GS, 3G and first gen iPhone users also biding their time. Jake said I was insane to make that prediction. That is because I thought Verizon would have at least the patience to wait for the iPhone 5 to come out. With the 4G service and Verizon network, I could see that population do a mass-exodus like no other phone would. But then Verizon had to go ruin it. Of course, we heard that Verizon is going to release the CDMA version of the iPhone4. You cannot do data on at...

Microsoft Hits, then Misses Mark with KIN 1

Microsoft Hits, then Misses Mark with KIN

Microsoft announces a semi-Smartphone – Bonus! Microsoft announces great pricing – Bonus! Then Microsoft gives the phone to Verizon…. ONLY. Then, Verizon puts a high price on the plan. What were they thinking? The Good Let’s start with the first part – Microsoft comes out with a phone for “the rest of us”. You can get to your facebook, Twitter and email without having a full-fledged smartphone. The Microsoft KIN will have a price of $50 and $100. While I wouldn’t get a phone like that, I do know some that would. All some do is go up on those social network sites. They don’t need the iBeer, or any other application. It also keeps the price of the phone low – $50 vs. $199. The Bad I don’t understand the next part. Microsoft unveils this great idea in the mid-grade market, then tells everyone it’s only on...

Why an Apple iPhone on Verizon is Bad – Would the FCC Step in? 1

Why an Apple iPhone on Verizon is Bad – Would the FCC Step in?

Right now Apple has the corner on the Smartphone – 40 percent market share, to be exact in the US alone. Apple also has the corner in Applications – 99.4 percent of Applications sold are from the iPhone. So if January 27th comes and they announce a 4G phone in CDMA format working on Verizon, they will have officially pushed the envelope and poised themselves to monopolize the mobile phone industry. That could have a horrible reverse impact for Apple as the FCC will then step in. It is no secret the Apple iPhone is the device to beat. It pretty much wrote the book on smartphones – taking over what Microsoft and Palm couldn’t accomplish. The only real change in the device was the switch from EDGE to 3G, and that became an added feature – have an underlying network to catch what 3G might not. Remember...

Case Dismissed 0

Case Dismissed

AT&T has dropped its lawsuit against Verizon’s ad campaign which compares AT&T’s 3G network unfavorably with Verizon’s. This was in response to a judge’s ruling that said, according to Bloomberg (linked above), when stripped of the legalese, that AT&T didn’t have a prayer of winning: AT&T filed a notice of dismissal today in federal court in Atlanta, less than a month after U.S. District Judge Timothy Batten denied AT&T’s request to stop the ad campaign and said AT&T was unlikely to prevail in the case. Verizon Wireless dropped a related lawsuit over the matter. In last month’s ruling, Batten said that while the ads, which use maps to compare the companies’ so-called third- generation networks, might be “sneaky” or “clever,” they are “literally true.” A hearing for AT&T to again ask the court to prohibit the ads had been scheduled for Dec. 16. In return, Verizon dropped its...

Phone Home, Home Phone 0

Phone Home, Home Phone

Contrary to prognostications, the wired telephone is not dead. One of my kids does not have a physical phone line and relies only on the cell, but the others are still wired. And so am I. If the cell phone’s dead and the cable is out, I want the security of that landline in case I ever have to make that 911 call I hope I never have to make. And many persons live in areas or circumstances in which relying solely on a cell is just not possible–signals are too weak and spotty, the geography is hostile, the home security system works best with a land line (I know you can get systems that work via the internet or cell technology, but, even so . . .). The New York Times reports that extra bells-and-whistles developed first for cell phones are starting to find their way into...
