For many, the light at the end of the tunnel is upon us! For anyone who does not have AT&T as their cell phone provider and has clamored for an iPhone, the wait is over.

Starting February 10, the iPhone 4 will be available through Verizon Wireless, as Apple ends its exclusive deal that has been in place since 2007 with AT&T to offer the popular smartphone.

Apple will unveil some new features in the Verizon iPhone, such as a faster network and a mini Wi-Fi hotspot, which can connect up to five nearby devices.

The phone will be available to qualified Verizon customers on the Web a week early, then the main public will have access to the iPhone on the February 10th dropdate.

What do you think: Smart move on AT&T’s part, or poor choice in losing brand leverage?
