We have some fresh details on the Verizon iPhone rumors to bring you now, and it is not particularly good news for Verizon customers looking to get hold of the iPhone this year.
As reported from BGR, new rumors have indictated that AT&T has extended its exclusive agreement with Apple for the iPhone, meaning that a possible release date for the iPhone on Verizon would not be happening until 2011 at the least.
That is according to analyst Brian Marshall of BroadPoint AmTech, who believes that this is due to the current pricing of data plans for the iPad 3G on AT&T. He thinks that AT&T would not have agreed to no long term contract plans for the iPad, without ‘getting something in return from Apple’.
This of course, would be the extention of the iPhone contract they have with Apple. Seems logical to us – we have not heard anything from Verizon since those comments from the CEO a few months ago.
What are your thoughts on this? Do you think it is true or not?
