By Alan Ng - Jun 4, 2010

We have an update on the highly anticipated, but still unannounced Verizon iPhone to share with you now, as Verizon spokesman John Johnson has issued a statement regarding Apple’s handset – it is not particularly good reading.

As reported from MacRumors, Johnson was speaking in a recent interview with when he revealed the news. When directly asked about the iPhone, and whether it would be landing on Verizon Wireless this year, he had this to say:

So for those of you who are still clinging on to the hope that Apple will announce Verizon as the next carrier for their iPhone 4G handset at WWDC 2010 – it doesn’t look likely now.

Still though, it doesn’t rule anything out for the future. Watch the interview with Johnson below to hear his comments for yourself.
