Happy Verizon iPhone Eve!

For over four years now, Verizon Wireless (VZW) customers have been waiting for the coveted Apple device to reach their network. Tomorrow, that will change. As previously reported, VZW will be hosting a special event in NYC to announce their newly obtained device. VZW keeps the hype going by Tweeting today FROM an iPhone "Getting ready to make news on Tuesday." I suspect Steve Jobs (Founder of Apple) might even make a guest appearance for the highly anticipated announcement. 

With AT&T losing exclusivity of the iPhone, VZW is setting itself up to possibly put the final nail in the coffin. No matter how many commercials AT&T airs about how great their network coverage is, it's not, and their customers have been pretty loud about how bad it actually is.  AT&T has also since eliminated unlimited data plans on their network, VZW however has yet to do that. The unlimited plan allow users to fully use the newly obtained device to its full potential. Some sources have put the price for the iPhone unlimited data plan at $29.99 or roughly $30.00 a month. Tomorrow I'm sure we will know more but, I thought I would share what is know/speculated so far. Happy Verizon iPhone Eve Everyone!  

UPDATE: As I reported above about AT&T's lack of coverage.

"Coverage?" App shows Verizon (Left)  vs AT&T (Right)...That's a LOT of red! 

There's an App for that... A new iOS app from Technomadia  called Coverage? lets you easily see what carrier is where, and how much coverage there is. The app uses Google Maps and reportedly supports zooming and multitouch. Coverage? costs $1.99 and is currently available in the Apple App Store for the iPhone, iPad and iPod touch.
