The Verizon iPhone will cost $199 for the 16GB, $299 for 32GB with a mobile hotspot included for up to 5 devices but they did not release information on monthly pricing.

Are you going to purchase the iPhone 4 on Verizon?
As I’ve been in the technology space for over 12 years one thing I’m tired of is all of the technology rumors. One of the most hyped rumors of all time is when or if Verizon will start selling the iPhone. Just do a Google Blog Search for “verizon iphone” and I’m sure between all the tech blogs and the AT&T users who want to switch to Verizon or the Verizon users who want the iPhone everyone is saying finally or will they?
Come Tuesday, January 11, 11:00 A.M., also known as 1.11.11. Verizon is to make an announcement in New York. Verizon has sent out the following non transferable announcement to selected technology bloggers and media outlets.
Also note during the Verizon wireless CES keynote there were no mentions of Verizon starting to sell the iPhone.
Now that the stars have aligned with the reports/rumors of the $50.00 AT&T iPhone 3Gs pricing, Apple blocking employees vacation days and the mandatory Verizon face-to face training Jan 25 to Feb 4, the Verizon iPhone is about to become a reality. So it seems.
The rumors are pointing to the Verizon iPhone media event on January 11 with the iPhone going on sell at Verizon starting February 3, 2011. Will it happen? Only time well tell. If not, expect the sky to fall, riots at Verizon stores, stocks to crumble and all heck to break lose on the blogosphere…. maybe.
For an added bonus, BGR is also guessing a big super bowl Verizon iPhone commercial push being the iPhone release date (February 3) is the same week.
Are you going to buy an iPhone on Verizon?
As some of you know I’m a big fan of the iPhone. I have purchased ever version of the iPhone from the first generation to the iPhone 4. The iPhone 4 is by far the best smartphone in the world (IMHO) because of the battery life, usability, the camera, the shape and access to the app store.
The infographic below by Website Monitoring Blog gives you a history along with facts and figures about Apple’s much beloved iPhone.
Earlier this year I wrote a blog post about how to find iPad apps seen in commercials. Since then, I receive tons of Goggle search results from people still trying to find the apps featured in the iPad commercials. The previous post said to look for the the banner ad in iTunes that reads “Apps from iPad TV Ads” that links to this iTunes url: http://itunes.apple.com/WebObjects/MZStore.woa/wa/viewMultiRoom?fcId=376895159. Now it seems as if the Apps from iPad TV Ads section in iTunes have not been updated for a while.
Now the best way to find featured apps from iPad commercials is on the iPad. Just launch the “App Store” application on the iPad scroll to the bottom and look in the “Quick Links” section. From there you will see a link that reads, “Apps from iPad TV Ads”. Click on that link and it will take you to the page below.
I would hope Apple continues to update the section in iTunes but it does make perfect sense to have the section in the App Store on the iPad assuming iPad owners are looking for iPad apps seen in Apple ads.
If you have not seen Apple’s latest commercial. Watch the, “the iPad Is Amazing” video below.
What’s your favorite iPad app or iPad commercial?
