The geek squads have done their testing with the new Verizon iPhones and it appears to be a mixed bag. The voice numbers are better, but the data streaming is not as good. And if a voice call comes in on Verizon, it drops any data streaming. This could have implications for iPad users. Using a smart phone as a wifi hub may suffer from dropped data streams, and the same slower data transfers. However, the evidence should make it more critical for Apple to have a dual mode chip in the next iPad.
