Blog calls Verizon's iPhone a 'transitional phone'
Verizon's version of the iPhone 4 has generated a lot of excitement, but an early review by the Consumer Reports' Electronic Blog suggests customers may be better off waiting.
The blog calls the phone a transitional phone to tide over Verizon customers until Apple likely releases an updated version, but that may happen as early as this summer.
Verizon's phone also works on the third generation data network when many are now coming out on the fourth generation or 4G.
Verizon begins sales of its new phone on February 10th.
