Non-exclusive Verizon Deal Could Allow iPhone on Other Carriers ➝

Neil Hughes:

When asked if the new CDMA iPhone is exclusive to Verizon, Cook called the deal “multi-year” and “non-exclusive.” That means the other major CDMA carrier in the U.S., Sprint, could also offer Apple’s smartphone, if it were to reach a deal with Apple.

I see the Verizon iPhone announcement as the first crack in the carrier wall. I wouldn’t be surprised if the iPhone also becomes available on Sprint and T-Mobile over the next few years.
