Short blog today on something I recently read and could not believe.
If you currently have a Verizon carrier then you should know about their “New every two” program in which after two years of having a phone, you are eligible for a $30-$100 discount on your next phone of choice. Well starting on January 16th, this program will no longer be available to new customers and current customers will not be re-admitted after using their current two year upgrade.
Like I said, short post but I really couldn’t believe this. Maybe Verizon is power hungry and want more money from upcoming users wanting to buy the iPhone 4? Not sure but it’s a pretty big disappointment to those who have Verizon as of now.
Earlier today, Apple announced that one of their latest products, the iPad, will be available to Verizon Wireless users on October 28th. The iPad and its bundle will cost $630 for a 16GB model, $730 for a 32GB model and $830 for a 64GB model. Besides this, Verizon will also offer a $20 monthly data plan for up to 1GB of data.
Although this is great, Verizon will unfortunatly not be selling 3G versions of the iPad. To replace this, they will be selling the regular Wi-Fi iPad with their own mobile hot spots which will allow users to connect to the internet anywhere where the 3G network can be used.
Many people believe that this is a start to something great. With Apple making a “bond” with Verizon Wireless we could start seeing Verizon selling more Apple products such as the iPhone as early as early next year.
What are your thoughts on the Apple-Verizon bond?
