iPhone coming to Vermont

Looks like the iPhone may finally be available in the Green Mountain State after all. The news comes as part of a wireless network swap between AT&T and Verizon. The Rutland Herald has a look at the deal and some of it’s implications for Vermont. (Via Paul Martin‘s Twitter.)

Simply mouth-watering
