What’s new about the Verizon iPhone 4?
Verizon’s iPhone 4 has a mobile hot spot, which will allow customers to use the phone to connect up to five Wi-Fi-enabled devices. AT&T’s iPhone does not have this hot spot feature. Here’s a link to the iPhone features as described on Apple’s website and on Verizon’s website.
Will it work on Verizon’s new 4G LTE network?
No. The iPhone 4 will operate on Verizon’s existing 3G network. That means it won’t be possible to talk on the smart phone and surf the Web at the same time.
Charles Golvin, principal analyst for Forrester Research, says that if Verizon wants an iPhone for its customers that will enable this functionality it will have to “convince Apple to use a more costly Qualcomm chip.”
