Hey guys, some breaking news hitting us moments ago, Verizon has responded to all of the rumors and buzz about tomorrow’s Verizon iPhone announcement, and this is what The Wall Street Journal is reporting:
“Verizon Wireless, the country’s largest wireless carrier, is confident enough in its network that it will offer unlimited data-use plans when it starts selling the iPhone around the end of this month, a person familiar with the matter said. Such plans would provide a key means of distinguishing its service from rival AT&T Inc., which limits how much Internet data such as videos and photos its customers may use each month.”
Now, these are bold words, but AT&T has directly responded to the media, and in doing so, blowing it and confirming the existence of the Verizon iPhone and upping the likelihood for a Verizon iPhone to a full 100% on the LEI Mobile rumor scale.
Here’s what AT&T had to say:
“The iPhone is built for speed, but that’s not what you get with a CDMA phone. I’m not sure iPhone users are ready for life in the slow lane.“
So there you go guys, the Verizon iPhone IS happening tomorrow. Apple, AT&T, and Verizon have been extremely busy with the press today, which is extremely odd for them all to be doing so considering that usually Apple, AT&T, and Verizon all usually deny rumors such as these…

Hey guys, this morning, it looks like AT&T made a move of it’s own, looks like the iPhone 3G [S] is now going to be $49 per phone (on a 2-year contract). Now, this is very suspicious to me due to all of the rumors going around about Verizon finally getting the iPhone.
To me, it appears as though AT&T is trying to lock in as many iPhone customers as they can before Verizon can get their hands on an iPhone. In 2010, we reported that Apple, Verizon, and AT&T agreed to move the Verizon iPhone announcement until 2011 so that AT&T could sign up as many people as they could before Verizon had a crack at it.
So there you go guys!
Here is AT&T’s press release:
AT&T* today announced a new price for the popular iPhone 3GS – $49.00 – available beginning tomorrow, Friday, January 7, for both new and upgrade-eligible existing AT&T customers. The offer will be available online at www.att.com/iphone, across more than 2,200 AT&T retail locations nationwide and through AT&T business channels, as well as Apple channels.**

Good afternoon everyone. I am very happy that you guys could join us today as we unveil the next generation of our most popular application. Yes folks, that’s right, I’m referring to LEI Mobile.
Now, the LEI Mobile app has been nothing but a success. We have shipped over 150,000 copies of the application across iOS devices and Mac OS X. We have been using the iTunes App Store and Cydia as our distribution channels, with BigBoss as our exclusive carrier on Cydia. We couldn’t be happier with the performance of LEI Mobile in the iOS software market.
We have garnered over 36% market share in the Site-Specific market on Cydia since our launch just one year ago. We have swiftly overtaken the market and we are very excited to be in that #1 spot with our closest competitor at about 12% market share. P1nkSn0w and SocialMe have also been performing very well, grabbing over 50,000 downloads since January (SocialMe) and July (P1nkSn0w). We couldn’t be happier.

Update: Apple has now posted the support document listing the changes and it looks like they are a couple small bug fixes that come with this update. Here they are:
* TV resolution fix: Addresses an issue that causes some high-definition TVs to incorrectly display at 480p.
* Download fix: Addresses an issue that may cause a movie or TV show to be re-downloaded.
Apple has just launched iOS 4.2.1 for the Apple TV! Now, there is no word on what exactly this new version does, I have updated to it and I don’t see any visual or feature changes yet, it downloaded in seconds to my Apple TV.
Apparently iOS no longer has to download the entire ipsw, Apple finally integrated the ‘quick-patch’ system, hopefully we’ll see this in iOS 5.
The Apple TV reports it as iOS 4.1.1 (which we all know is really iOS 4.2.1), more updates as to what the update brings as we get the info!read more
