the article in the OP's post is interesting......after reading it, i think that apple's intent was to go with verizon first. makes sense because according to them, they had "the perfect device" to offer up and sought out "the most reliable" (aka..."can you hear me now ?") carrier. probably a nice shot in the ankle for apple when they heard the answer. also, it makes sense, because with verizon apple would not have to worry about sim cards & all that happy crap.

personally i don't care much for verizon, but kudos to them for telling apple to go shove it. it's not every day that you see compaines out there setting up 'arrogant, and ****y' business models for the world to see as does apple. at least verizon maintained thier business ethics and to the point that they did not leap over skyscrapers & the like just to be the ones to offer up the ifone first.
