In what could break the AT&T monopoly on iPhone sales in the U.S., Apple Inc. reportedly is planning to produce an iPhone that can be sold by other carriers like Verizon using the CDMA wireless network. School of Management Professor N. Venkat Venkatraman, chairman of the Information Systems Department, says it’s a strategic move by Apple to establish superiority in the USA.
“Consumers love Verizon’s network and that has allowed Google’s Android to gain a stronghold. This will ensure that consumers get iPhone on their favorite network and then Apple can migrate them to iPad and other future devices.”
