    No. I don't ever see myself following the apple herd. I'll give credit to Apple that they make some pretty solid hardware but I cannot stand the closed nature of the apple ecosystem. I don't want to be locked into Steve Jobs way of doing things. Apple just isn't for me and unless things drastically change in the way Apple operates it never will be. It is all about personal preference. In MY opinion (and you know what they say about opinions) WebOS is the best smart phone platform for ME.

    And no, never would consider going to Verizon. No thanks.
    Look, even more news about a CDMA iPhone - this time from the New York Times!

    http://www.nytimes.com/2010/10/09/te...hone.html?_r=1

    After more than three years of using only AT&T cellphone networks, Apple is making a version of the iPhone 4 for Verizon’s network, according to a person who is in direct contact with Apple. Apple and Verizon will begin selling the phone early next year, the person said, who agreed to speak on condition of anonymity because the plans were supposed to be confidential and he did not want to alienate his contacts at Apple.

    [...]

    While the arrival of the iPhone on Verizon had long been expected, some industry insiders doubted that Apple would bring the iPhone to Verizon before the carrier deploys its next generation network, known as LTE.

    But in an interview this week, Tony Melone, the chief technology officer of Verizon Wireless, suggested that those doubters could be wrong. Mr. Melone did not comment on the iPhone, but he said that while Verizon would begin rolling out its new network in 40 American cities by the end of the year, the company’s older 3G network would continue to grow for several years. He also said that Verizon would continue “selling 3G devices well into the decade, possibly through the end of the decade.”

    Just to be clear, the NYTimes' source is the WSJ article. It does not corroborate the WSJ article, it merely repeats it.

    And according to the WSJ article, their source is "people familiar with the matter."

    Feel free to draw your own conclusions. Not saying it won't happen, but so far, it's just another rumor.

    You mean the New York Times article that opens with them quoting their own independent source and closing with them tacitly admitting the WSJ scooped them with their own source?

    Hmmm... I see no need to write my name in the snow in the middle of summer... The product doesn't exist yet. Will cross this particular bridge after the sucker is built.

    The Times does not quote their own "independent source." They cite:

    ...according to a person who is in direct contact with Apple...
    In other words, the person mentioned in the WSJ article. News orgs do this type of BS all the time. If it really was their own independent source, they would have been proud to have mentioned that. Reading between the lines, it is obvious the Times' article is just a more fluffed up re-write of the WSJ article. But people will believe what they want.
