Why you should take reports of an iPhone on Verizon with a pinch of salt

Remember this report about how the iPad was a cert for Verizon?:

“The tablet will be supported by multiple [mobile] carriers,” said Brian Marshall of Broadpoint AmTech, citing unnamed sources he said were close to the situation. “Verizon and others,” he continued. “Definitely Verizon. I’ve been told that’s a certainty.”

As I said at the time, there is more chance that Apple will expand to another US carrier which uses GSM than it will build hardware tailored to a single US network.

    I think that the iPad / iPhone for Verizon rumors are there to try and keep some demand for the products toned down. It is trying to compete with the devices Apple make with the only thing that matches them – er the same products on a different carrier.

    Apple’s competitors think that this will help temper the device sales while they get their act together. However it seems that this approach doesn’t seem to be working.
