Tepid demand, small or no lines at Verizon or Apple Stores. What happened? Verizon had us believe that there was good demand for iPhone 4 when it sold out its pre-order within 24 hours.
The day has come. The iPhone is finally available on the Verizon Wireless network. At last, the CDMA version of the iPhone 4 is now available to the masses at Verizon Wireless and Apple stores, Wal-Mart, Best Buy, and online. But where are the masses?
According to reports Verizon fanfare over day-one sales doesn't come close to matching the excitement of iPhone 4's initial debut on AT&T's network just over eight months ago. News reports from across the country say foot traffic is light to retail stores. Lack of interest in the iPhone 4 contrasts Verizon's earlier claims it sold-out of its first batch of iPhone 4 stock in less than 24 hours when it made the phone available on Feb. 4 for its customers to pre-order.
