In its official statement on Tuesday (11/01/2011), Verizon confirmed the rumors. The operator will provide the iPhone with the same package as AT&T starting price of 199.99 U.S. dollars with a two-year subscription contract period.
The presence of the CDMA version of the iPhone, Apple dismantle the exclusive cooperation and AT&T so far as the sole distribution partner in the U.S. iPhone.
In other countries outside the U.S., Apple also apply the same strategy by holding a service such as with Telkomsel in Indonesia. Rumors circulated, Apple was rumored to be together with other operators to distribute the iPhone in Indonesia. Several times XL expressed interest, but as usual there is no certainty of Apple.
At the launch of the iPhone 4 in Indonesia, the end of 2010, Telkomsel in fact still be a single partner. If in the U.S., Apple took a different operator network technology to expand iPhone distribution.
AT&T are GSM operators while Verizon uses CDMA. Whether in Indonesia, Apple will choose another carrier fellow GSM or CDMA?
