AT&T finds love with Android

AT&T is falling in love with Android, now that the iPhone isn't exclusive
Written by Joel Evans, Contributor

With AT&T's iPhone exclusivity set to expire on February 3rd, when Verizon begins offering the ability to pre-order the Verizon iPhone, AT&T is set to show some love to another OS: Android.

According to comments made by AT&T's CEO, the company will start "very aggressively" marketing Android-based phones.

If I were AT&T's marketing people, the first thing I would do is put up a video of someone simultaneously talking and surfing on an iPhone--with a Verizon customer not being able to do that. Then again, I think they did that previously, just not highlighting the iPhone. Since this is a known issue with Verizon's CDMA network, it would make sense to try to exploit that fact since AT&T continues to come under fire for its own network issues.

According to "="" class="c-regularLink" rel="noopener nofollow">death grip issue, the iPhone 4 has been a fantastic member of my gadget family.

As for Android, I also sport the HTC EVO, which is a fantastic device on Sprint's network. I also know a ton of people who have the Droid X on Verizon, since they couldn't get an iPhone on Verizon at the time. They're more than happy with their phone, and have no intention of switching to an iPhone.

Are you jumping AT&T for Verizon in search of the new iPhone? Or are you already enjoying either the iPhone or another phone on AT&T?
