Shawn provides the best brief overview I have seen of today’s Verizon iPhone announcement. I see lots of people getting all jazzed up about the “mobile hot spot” feature but here is an important note:
And while the mobile hotspot is a great feature, on Verizon’s CDMA network you can’t use data and voice simultaneously. If you’re broadcasting an internet connection with your Verizon iPhone and someone gives you a call, then the connection goes dead. Like when you were online using dialup and someone called your house.
It’s like 1998 only with less flannel.
