Fortune: Verizon iPhone Will be Released in Early 2011
Posted on October 29, 2010 by vincent oliver
Fortune says it has confirmed that a “Verizon iPhone will be released in early 2011.” It will be its own version of the iPhone 4 to work on Verizon’s CDMA 3G network.
People familiar with its development say it is a fait accompli. Verizon, sources say, will sell its own version of the iPhone 4, which will work on Verizon’s CDMA-based 3G network. Unfortunately for globe trotters, the first version of the phone likely won’t be built to work outside the U.S. — it probably won’t carry a special chip that can turn it into a “world phone.” However, it may have some of the features on the iPad distributed in Verizon’s stores, like live TV for customers of the FiOS cable service.
