Granted, the entire Metricon Wireless report is $4,950, so we're trusting the Associated Press for the most part on this one; however, Metrico has a few bullet summation points that may shock, dismay or bemuse the handheld-devide lover in your life.
-- AT&T completed about 10 percent more download sessions than Verizon's.
-- AT&T Bluetooth was less clear than BlackBerry Torch and Curve
-- AT&T did not fare as well in call perfomance (faux gasp here) as the Samsung Captivate or HTC Aria.
-- Verizon iPhone is near the top in noise cancellation and about the same as Motorola Droid X and LG Ally.
-- Verizon is not only slower in download speed, it is also slower than other phone models on its own network. (That's gotta sting for those that paid AT&T cancellations.)
