This bit was posted on the Consumer Reports electronics blog:
The less iPhone-addicted consumer, on the other hand, may want to hold off for a newer version of the iPhone before even considering whether to buy one.
The best part about this is that there will soon be tangible proof of the irrelevance of Consumer Reports. By that I mean a ton of people are going to ignore this “warning” from CR and instead buy the Verizon iPhone 4.
That said, I do agree with this statement:
With Apple likely to ship a new iPhone generation in June or July, as it always has for the iPhone, this is a transitional phone to tide Verizon through until the summer.
I just don’t understand why you buy a Verizon iPhone 4 now, instead of waiting until June/July to see if Apple releases an iPhone 5 at that time.
