A recent report from a major telecoms company, Verizon tells us that the iPhone is ‘bittersweet’ for them. This is due to the almost 11 million iPhones that they have sold over the due course of 2011, that’s including the 4.2 million they shifted in the last quarter. While Verizon themselves do admit to be down on their wireless margins, but this is due to the shear amount of iPhones that they have sold.
There were reports a few days back that mentioned that the Samsung Galaxy Nexus would not be released till December. Before that we heard it was going to be released in November. The phone is not going to be out in November, so you’re going to have to wait a little longer. The good news is that when it is launched, you’ll probably be able to pick it up from Verizon with a two year contract for just $199.

Well, Apple is not perfect. Consumer Reports is reporting that even the new Verizon iPhone 4 has got the Antennagate issue first experienced on the AT&T iPhone. Just like the AT&T iPhone, when you now grip your phone in a way such that your hand covers the area between the two pieces of metal, the call drops.
As the iPhone 4 is now available on both AT&T and Verizon, people are curious to know if they both perform in the same way or if they are slightly different from each other. According to research firm Ookla, it turns out that the AT&T iPhone 4 transfer rate is twice as fast at the one by Verizon.
Verizon Wireless will begin selling Verizon iPhone 4 to existing Verizon customers from February 3rd, and non existing Verizon customers can get their hands on the device starting February 10th. Whenever an Apple product is launched, the extraordinary hype created leads to huge lines in front of Apple stores and short supply of products.
