We are expecting the exclusive agreement between Apple and AT&T for the iPhone to end either at the end of this year or the beginning of 2011, we have already heard more rumors today that Verizon may be getting a CDMA iPhone early in 2011.
Now it lo0ks like there is more evidence that the deal between Apple and AT&T is about to end, as Slash Gear is reporting on details found in a recent SEC filing which support this.
The SEC filing mentions ‘exclusive arrangements end’ which pretty much refers to the iPhone and Apple deal. This would be great news for iPhone 4 customers who have been complaining for quite some time about AT&T’s network, and it would give them more choice.
It would also be good news for Apple, initially to launch the iPhone back in 2007 Apple needed AT&T, but they no longer need them as they have established the iPhone as one of the most popular smartphone brands available.
