"After considering a number of factors, we believe Apple could offer its iPhone platform on additional carriers by 2011 to sustain solid unit volumes in the U.S. market, and we believe Verizon is a leading contender to offer its first iPhone between late-2010 and 2011," the analysts wrote in their report. eWEEK has assembled a list of the Top 10 reasons why Apple should bring its iPhone to Verizon's network and why AT&T's exclusive relationship with Apple could come to an end within the next two years.
