Every week we hear a rumor that the new Verizon iPhone 4 is coming, we now have another release date rumor thanks to Bloomberg this time. That date is Jan 2011, but is this just another rumor that we should ignore, or is there more truth to this one?
Earlier this year the WSJ reported that the Verizon iPhone was coming in September and that it would be announced at WWDC 2010, but Apple failed to do so at its keynote. It is no secret that Big Red customers want the iPhone, and we are more than certain that it will happen — although we are uncertain of when.
However, now that we look back at the Wall Street Journal post, it was stated that production would start in September, so a January 2011 release certainly seems about right. This would also give Apple more than enough time to get around the current signal problems.
Nilay Patel from Engadget thinks that if Jan 2011 is the true release date for the Verizon iPhone 4, then they will miss out on all the holiday season buying. As you would imagine Apple has not commented on this, do you believe that there is any truth in this latest rumor?
