Will the iPhone Soon Be Available from Verizon Wireless?

Might Verizon help launch a smaller iPhone-like device currently under development?

According to BusinessWeek, Verizon Wireless CEO Lowell McAdam (pictured) has been speaking with Apple executives, and the iPhone rumor mills are saying that perhaps Verizon is considering becoming involved with Apple to help launch a smaller iPhone-like device currently under development.

Whether or not the AT&T iPhone will one day be joined by others, one thing is clear and that is that the iPhone is now being adopted by enterprises. In fact, many believe that the iPhone will end up the year as having been be the most adopted enterprise device in 2009.

From a starting-point of just over 500 when it was first launched, Apple's App Store has about 25,000 applications available and downloads recently surpassed 1 billion. And its adoption by the enterprise is one of the themes of the upcoming iPhone Developer Summit being held in New York City (June 22, 2009), at The Roosevelt Hotel, co-located with the 7th International AJAXWorld RIA Conference & Expo.

The groundbreaking iPhone Developer Summit is chaired by the Editor of iPhone Developer's Magazine, Ian Thain.

Speakers at the one-day summit include:

The iPhone Developer Summit is co-located in New York City with the 7th International AJAXWorld RIA Conference & Expo. The Conference Theme is "Driving Profitability Through the User Experience" and there are 100+ sessions overall including industry panels that explore and explain how simple, rich interfaces that don’t get in the way of the user's experience but enhance it are increasingly becoming tied to value creation, profitability and staying-power in the marketplace.

IT professionals of every stripe will come away from NYC with an enhanced understanding of what it takes to effectively evaluate, design and build on-line experiences that are compelling, usable, and profitable. Our organizing principle is that attending delegates should leave the Conference with abundant resources, ideas and examples they can apply immediately to leveraging the technologies they see on display and hear under discussion.
