Verizon iPhone 4 LTE (4G) photo leaked online?

“An anonymous source has just given us an interesting nugget: A photo of what looks like the Verizon iPhone,” Adriana Lee reports for “And that’s not all — check out the upper left corner. See what it says there? That’s right, ‘Verizon LTE.’ In other words, this looks like it could be a Verizon iPhone that supports the carrier’s 4G network.”

Lee reports, “Unlike previous fuzzy or out-of-focus leaked pics, this is an extremely clear image. But is it real? Well, we asked the tipster where the photo came from. He wouldn’t say specifically, but he did mention that the MacBook in the background belongs to a Verizon engineer in the Pacific Northwest region and that the handset is running iOS 4.2.”

  1. Another “leak” from MAC on the eve of Microsoft’s super triumphant release or Windows Phone 7. Aren’t you MAC fangirls tired of the smoke and mirrors vaporware, empty promises and product concepts that never make it to the public?

    Honestly, I can’t see why any carrier would want to add the overpriced, proprietary I-Phone when Windows Phone 7 with Zune music player and awesome Exchange integration is right around the corner. You heard it here first: expect a fire sale on I-Phone paperweights in 3 months. I Outlook calendar’d it.

    Your potential. Our passion.™

  2. If it is real, I am going to say unequivocally that the person using the phone with the “Tagnt6532a” designation instead of the time at the top center of the phone’s menu bar either had permission to release this or will be in the CEOs office shortly.

  3. FAKE 1 |fāk|
    a thing that is not genuine; a forgery or sham : the painting was a fake.
    • a person who appears or claims to be something that they are not.


    faker noun
    fakery |ˈfākərē| noun
    ORIGIN late 18th cent. (as an adjective; originally slang): origin uncertain; perhaps ultimately related to German fegen ‘sweep, thrash.’
