Yesterday’s iPad 2 launch was the day that Verizon finally joined AT&T on launching a new Apple product on the same day. As reported by BeatWeek and experienced by Dan Morgan himself, Verizon iPad 2‘s are selling out much slower (if at all):
“Nevermind the efforts of the sales folk who were singing the virtues of the Verizon iPad 2. No one wanted it. And that makes you wonder whether the world (or the nation, to be accurate) really wants a Verizon iPhone 5.”
Are Apple fans still not ready to adapt to Verizon? Add this surprising news to the fact that Verizon iPhone 4 was NOT a runaway success either. Couple this with the fact that AT&T 3G is faster than Verizon in the US.
So where does the Verizon iPhone 5 stand, and why is Verizon having a hard time selling Apple devices? After numerous years waiting for Verizon enabled iOS devices (especially the iPhone), Verizon has one last chance to prove they’re “all that” with the launch of iPhone 5.
What do you think is going on? And will their iPhone 5 SMASH AT&Ts?
