VZ throwing toys out of pram?
Apple tablet (big iPod touch) - very likely. Is Verizon worried about Apple? - very likely. (What if they paid for LTE and only a few laptop road warriors wanted it on VZ's terms; everyone else wanting a pocket OS X device or its open equivalent?) iPod touch VZ with built-in CDMA dumb phone - might be compatible with the AT&T exclusive. Verizon to get an iPhone soon? Definitely not. But probably VZ is just putting out rumours to keep its profitable data customers from defecting.
"Apple's goal worldwide domination"? I don't think so, although, since big business is a form of warfare, Apple's actions are often indistinguishable from those of a company with that objective. Microsoft actually achieved world domination, but as we see now, it can be lost rather suddenly. The stable end state is diversity, not monoculture, which is why, unlike MS, Apple isn't actually trying to dominate or control content formats or distribution, only provide an exemplar which competitors must match (but so far are too greedy to match). I expect Apple to "let go" of parts of its control as it achieves its objectives, just as they willingly let go of DRM, and forced carriers into affordable content neutral "unlimited" mobile contracts, both of which represent empowering the end user rather than collective megacorp partners.
