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.

Advanced Persistent Threats (APTs) are increasing at an unprecedented rate. The threat landscape of today is drastically different than just a few years ago. Attacks are much more organized and sophisticated. They are harder to detect and even harder to anticipate. In the foreseeable future it's going to get a whole lot harder. Everything you know today will change. Keeping up with this changing landscape is already a daunting task. Your organization needs to use the latest tools, methods and expertise to guard against those threats. But will that be enough? In the foreseeable future attacks w...

The Internet of Things is a misnomer. That implies that everything is on the Internet, and that simply should not be - especially for things that are blurring the line between medical devices that stimulate like a pacemaker and quantified self-sensors like a pedometer or pulse tracker. The mesh of things that we manage must be segmented into zones of trust for sensing data, transmitting data, receiving command and control administrative changes, and peer-to-peer mesh messaging. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ryan Bagnulo, Solution Architect / Software Engineer at SOA Software, focused on desi...
