When Apple launched the iPhone oh so many years ago, AT&T was the only company able to offer it in the U.S. The two enjoyed a brief love affair, but Apple was never meant to be locked down to just one partner, and now you can get an iPhone just about anywhere. Sure, the two still hang out and occasionally grab coffee, but the love is gone.
So how will that former romance factor into today’s showdown?
In spite of being smaller and slower than Verizon, AT&T was able to get Big Red up against the electrified walls of the WCIA Padded Cell in the first round, taking home an impressive 68-32 victory.
But can it repeat that showing against Apple, whose 65-35 defeat of Microsoft was almost as decisive. Of course, one could argue that beating up on Microsoft was like kicking the butt of some old wrestler coming back from his third attempt at retirement, while Verizon still has a future in WCIA competition.
The past is the past. All that matters today is your vote.
VOTING FOR THIS POLL IS NOW CLOSED. CONGRATULATIONS TO AT&T FOR MOVING ON TO THE NEXT ROUND!
