“After more than three years of using only AT&T cellphone networks, Apple is now making a version of the iPhone 4 for Verizon’s network, according to a person who is in direct contact with Apple,” Helft reports. “Apple and Verizon will begin selling the phone early next year, said the person, who agreed to speak on condition of anonymity because the plans were supposed to be confidential and he did not want to alienate his contacts at Apple.”

Helft reports, “The arrival of the iPhone to Verizon could further increase Apple’s bottom line, with some analysts predicting the company could sell an additional 10 million devices per year… On Wednesday, The Wall Street Journal reported that the iPhone would be available on Verizon early next year.”

We can sit by and watch competitors steal our patented inventions, or we can do something about it. We’ve decided to do something about it. We think competition is healthy, but competitors should create their own original technology, not steal ours.Apple CEO Steve Jobs, March 02, 2010

  3. This is nothing like the random murmurs of a CDMA iPhone in the past. An anonymous source popping up once a year to tell us of the Verizon iPhone’s imminent arrival. For once we have actual info related to production of the phones. We have info in relation to the Qualcomm CDMA chipsets, and movement within the Qualcomm company itself as they prepare to nurture their budding partnership with Apple. And now we have reporting from confidential sources from two separate papers of repute.

    The stars are in alignment. This is the real deal. The gates of heaven are opening. The day is near when we’ll be able to pair the best phone ever made with the best, most reliable network. We will soon be drowning in gleeful happiness, while a flood of pain rushes toward the ungrateful, cheating competitors who roughly cloned Apple’s innovations.
