WSJ: Apple to expand iPhone market

As enthusiasts gear up for the iPad to go on sale this weekend, there's more chatter about Apple significantly expanding its market share. The Wall Street Journal is reporting a new iPhone could be in the works that can be used with Verizon Wireless and other carriers. This would, no doubt, intensify the telecoms competition between Verizon and AT&T (which currently enjoys an exclusive partnership with Apple). But ultimately this expansion will only continue to expand Apple's reach. The Journal writes:   

It mightn't (sic) get as rich a wholesale price for the device as it has from AT&T during its period of exclusivity. But working with Verizon gives Apple the chance to sharply boost its U.S. market share—likely at the expense of rivals in the Google-affiliated Android camp.
