A few days ago it came to light that Verizon had been secretly buying domain names with the term iphone in it. Today, according to Bloomberg “Verizon said to start offering iPhone in January. Verizon Wireless, the largest U.S. mobile-phone company, will start selling Apple Inc.’s iPhone this year, ending AT&T’s exclusive hold on the smartphone in the U.S.”

This once again shows the importance of domains to successfully planing a product launch. Also, watching domain name purchases is a great way to learn about things before they happen. Does anyone know how Verizon stock is doing?
