Do you plan to get the Verizon iPhone?

People aren't calling it the Apple iPhone. It's the "Verizon" iPhone. Big Red has finally announced that they will be offering an iPhone in the early part of 2011 and reports are predicting that millions of people will get in line to buy the Verizon iPhone. Will you be one of them?

Given that I recently upgraded to the Motorola Droid X, I won't be making the switch. However, I'm willing to keep an open mind so that I can reassess the situation in 2012. Perhaps by then the vast majority of devices will be 4G. Maybe your smartphone OS won't be a critical factor. After all, I'm predicting that future smartphone apps will be cloud-based and they will run off the mobile web browser. So, it really won't matter which OS you're running if you're truly computing off the "cloud."
