Verizon Gets the iPhone 4

So AT&T's exclusivity contract has run out and the announcement that everyone and their mother knew would be coming finally came along yesterday- telecommunication giant Verizon finally will be carrying the Apple iPhone- starting with a slightly redesigned iPhone 4.

Most notably- the 'new' 4 will feature a modified antenna design for enhanced reception when held in the 'death grip' that the AT&T version suffered from, and will have MiFi functionality that will allow the device to function as a hotspot for up to five additional devices.

A new carrier, especially one as big as Verizon, is really a kick in the pants (and the sales figures) for the Apple phone and can only boost their place in the market.

You can get your Verizon iPhone 4 starting February 10th.
