iPhone and it’s untapped potential

3 July 2007

apple-iphone The world will not know the true potential of the iPhone for many months. The fact that Apple chose to go with ATT’s network for it’s first phone launch was a potentially huge mistake. Granted, the masses will not know the difference, but power users will. What am I talking about? The data network, of course. ATT’s EDGE is ok, but it pales in comparison to the EVDO network that both Sprint and Verizon offer. I’m a Sprint fan, and they do have the cheaper data plans of the two CDMA carriers, but either one would do.

Since the iPhone is so data-centric, I’m very surprised at Apple’s choice of carriers. Once the iPhone wanders over to the CDMA side, then the true power will be known – and the other smartphones will tremble.
