If speculation holds and Verizon brings Apple's (AAPL - Get Report) iPhone into the fold in the first quarter of next year, its 14.1 million in sales last quarter -- a 91% improvement over the same period last year -- could be easily eclipsed; JP Morgan (JPM) estimates that the iPhone will boost Verizon profits by 11%. Unlike AT&T, where 13 million iPhone subscribers at the end of the first quarter of this year accounted for 15% of the wireless subscriber base and 25% of wireless revenues, though, Verizon has a few more toys in the box.

Verizon's Motorola (MOT) Droid X, Droid Incredible and Droid 2 Google (GOOG) Android phones, for example, accounted for about 27% of total Android sales in the second quarter of this year. Also, roughly 4% of Verizon's smartphone users use 2 gigabytes of data per month, compared with only about 2.5% of AT&T's iPhone customers.
