    According to the source link (below), Apple and Verizon are in negotiations to deliver iOS updates after version 5 over-the-air.

    Multiple sources say the new feature will debut in iOS 5, meaning iOS 5 will not come over-the-air but following point updates to it will. Just like tethering in iOS 3, Apple has the technology but cannot just unleash it everywhere. Apple and Verizon Wireless are said to have been in talks over these wireless software updates since early this year. Sources could not comment on whether or not Apple is negotiating similar deals with AT&T or international iPhone carriers.
    This also seems to indicate that Apple may start delivering smaller incremental updates to iOS instead of several hundred megabyte files which would likely not be welcome OTA by the carriers.

    Here’s my review of the Motorola ATRIX.

    The ATRIX is a solid phone. Personally, I think 4” is the perfect size for typing on an Android. Despite the ATRIX beefy hardware, it’s more or less the same size as similar single core phones. As far as the build quality goes, the ATRIX is a pretty solid device despite the fact that it has a removable back cover. What I like is that the back cover doesn’t completely cover the sides - that means it doesn’t squeak or creak when you squeeze it.



    The screen measures 4” and has a resolution of 960x540, higher than last year’s crop of high- end Android phones. For example, the Galaxy S and HTC Desire have 800x480 displays while the Motorola Milestone and Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 are at 854x480.
