We have been hearing for quite some time now that Verizon would be get a CDMA iPhone, unfortunately none of the previous rumors have turned out to be true and Verizon customers are still waiting to get their hands on the iPhone.
According to Tech Crunch, Apple [AAPL] and Verizon could be launching a CDMA iPhone 4 in January 2011, as there are reports that Apple has ordered a large number of CDMA chipsets from Qualcomm.
Apple may be considering an iPhone on Verizon as they would be able to sell maybe two or three million units right away, just like they did when they launched the iPhone 4 and had massive pre-order sales.
Also Apple and AT&T’s exclusivity agreement is due to end in 2011, so this could be a good move for Apple, and it would also be welcomed by iPhone users who would now have another choice of a network.
Of course this is yet to be unconfirmed, and just another rumor in the long line of Verizon CDMA iPhone rumors, it definately would be a good move for Apple.Filed Under: Apple, Apple iPhone, Technology News
