Verizon iPhone 4: Buy on Release Date or wait for iPhone 5?

By Alan Ng - Jan 11, 2011

If you have been keeping a close eye on Verizon’s ongoing live event, you won’t need us to tell you that the company has finally confirmed that Verizon will be releasing a CDMA version of the iPhone 4.

The question is though, are you going to buy it straight away, or wait until Apple announce the iPhone 5? Although there has been hints of brand new features aside from CDMA support, it looks as if Verizon’s version is going to be exactly the same as the current iPhone 4, and you’ll also want to know that the iPhone 4 on Verizon won’t support their 4G LTE network.

It’s no time for complaining though, as Verizon owners are probably delighted that they’ll finally have an alternative to AT&T in the US. The Verizon iPhone will be available on February 10th, priced at $200 (16GB model) – which may raise a few eyebrows or two. If Apple stick to their usual trend and announce the iPhone 5 this Summer at WWDC 2011, then it will certainly be an interesting choice as far as Verizon subscribers are concerned.

Do you just buy the iPhone 4 on Verizon out of sheer excitement, or hold back a few months in case Apple decide to unleash the iPhone 5 this Summer. You can bet that the next generation iPhone will also be on Verizon now that there are no secrets, so what are you planning to do?
