The Week in Smartphone Wars


Professionals with every perspective weighed in. Here, Minyanville offers a recap of this week's hottest debate.

We're one week away from a day nobody thought would come. On February 10, Verizon (VZ) will finally release the iPhone on its network. Fanboys are rejoicing, AT&T (T) is quaking, and Verizon's ruining it all by throttling data speeds. Meanwhile, Apple's (AAPL) old flame is facing accusations of overcharging customers -- and Cupertino might be to blame. And lastly, while the smartphone war is virtually deadlocked in a three-way tie, Netgear (NTGR) CEO Patrick Lo championed Android's (GOOG) progress but had some harsh words for Apple, Microsoft (MSFT), and Steve Jobs' hubris.

All in all, just another week in the tech trenches.
