There have literally been hundreds of startup companies that have made millions of dollars off of the iPhone. These companies primarily make accessories specifically designed for the iPhone. Things like cell phone cases
and screen protectors
can be found in dozens of different colors and styles. Even major designer labels like Ed Hardy and Body Glove have gotten in on the action. And it's not just every day accessories either. Everything from iPhone baby monitors to iPhone heart monitors to iPhone meat thermometers have found their way onto the market.
With Verizon set to launch a CDMA version of the World's most popular smartphone, these third party manufacturers are licking their lips at the millions of new customers that are suddenly opening up to them. What they don't want you to know is that the vast majority of existing accessories are going to be 100% compatible with the new Verizon iPhone. In fact, only a handful of cases and covers are likely to be incompatible due to the fact that the reconfigured antenna on the Verizon device has pushed the mute and volume buttons slightly farther down on the side of the iPhone.
It's hard to imagine that there are very many new products out there that haven't yet been conceived. But with millions of new iPhone customers expected to make the switch in February, there's bound to be another slew of startups looking to cash in on the backs of Apple and Verizon.
