Fierce Wireless has a good short piece on news related to iPhone and VZW and specifically about planned upgrade of VZWs tech to allow simultaneous use of voice and data channels. This has long been an advantage of the iphone on AT&T. You can surf and talk at the same time. While some have poo-pooed this as a rarefied use-case, I have personally benefited from he ability to talk and look up an address or refresh a map at the same time. Doesn’t seem so rarefied a use case to me. Depending on when/how this is implemented, it could be a boon to all VZW data customers, including Android users.
