Hugh Pickens writes "Sascha Segan writes that though Verizon adamantly denies select committee merchantry away from Apple's iPhones in favor of 4G LTE-enabled Android devices, he is convinced that Verizon has a strong reason to push buyers away from the iPhone. 'Here's the problem,' writes Segan. 'Verizon has spent sea of dollars rolling out its massive LTE network' but the carrier can't easily add reach on its old 3G network. Since the iPhone isn't a 4G, phone sales of Verizon iPhones just crowd up their already busy 3G network while their 4G network has plenty of space. 'The iPhone is a great device. But it's making a crowded network more crowded. Until the LTE iPhone comes along, to rebalance its network, Verizon may quietly push Android phones.'"
