Verizon Wireless, the largest U.S. mobile-phone company, will start selling Apple Inc.’s iPhone next year, closing out AT&T Inc.’s exclusive license on the smartphone in the U.S. – So say inside sources. Verizon could very well generate a 12 million net additional iPhone sales for Apple plus $3 in EPS per year—which isn’t included into current expectations.

In the first quarter of this year, a third of AT&T’s iPhone activations came from consumers new to the carrier. In the absence of those 900,000 new subscribers, ATT may have posted a loss in contract customers that quarter, analysts relayed.

Apple has sold more than 50 million iPhones since the smart-phone’s introduction in 2007. The latest version, iPhone 4, sold more than 1.7 million units in the first three days after its recent debut, a record for the product.

What does that mean for apps and devices running on the Android, Rim and Bada platforms? As the sophistication of these platforms and devices rises, so does the demand for their devices and downloads. More app developers will follow if for no other reason than the potential numbers. Open source is a great incentive and a competitive field provides options to those that don’t feel the love from APPL.

The greatest impact will be the inevitable migration to smart-phones which only have a 20% or so share of the total operating global devices, but show a 72% quarter on quarter increase.  We will see a further transition to data communications over voice. It may even come to pass that we drop the word “phone’ from the device vocabulary once ubiquity is achieved.

We believe that the greatest changes may not appear in devices, apps or even in the growth of revenues, but rather in the evolution of our social DNA. The opportunity for us to be aware of each others location using GPS technology in a safe, opt-in transparent fashion will forever alter our social interactions with merchants, business associates, friends, family and places…

Companies like GTX Corp and its LOCiMOBILE subsidiary, have found sincere interest for their miniaturized embedded technologies here and abroad addressing logistic, asset management, people tracking and social networking applications because everyone is asking the “where is” question and GTXO has the “where is” answer.

Apple has filed suit against cell phone manufacturer HTC for patent infringement. While the lawsuit names HTC, the largest manufacturer of Android handsets, the actual target is Google’s Android OS. Open systems may very well mean open warfare as a barrage of 20 Apple patents contest the very opportunity for Google to launch a marketing offensive in the Smart Phone space. The thud of the gauntlet resounded throughout the 3G world with simultaneous domestic and international filings.
