Verizon iPhone is simply not worth the wait
Rumors of a deal that would allow Verizon to sell Apple's iPhone are swirling once again.
And, on Thursday, Verizon announced it would begin selling the iPad by the end of the month.
Which leaves the cheap tech shopper wondering ... is it worth the wait for an iPhone on Verizon's network?
Truth is, data plans (from all the carriers) are ridiculously expensive. Added fees for tethering make the most useful smartphone an even pricier option.
Nearly all of my gadget-freak friends own iPod Touches and rely on the nearest free Wi-Fi to connect. While all of them lust for an iPhone, they love the Touch — and the extra $20 to $30 a month in their pockets -- enough to resist.
Have you sprung for a smartphone? Is it worth the money?
