It seems that at least once a week if not more a new rumor surrounding a Verizon version of the iPhone pops up. Just yesterday we reported that 23 percent of AT&T customers said that they would move over to Big Red if they got the iPhone – which AT&T said that they were not worried about. Now we have yet more news on the release date of the CDMA version.
We already know that early 2011 seems to be the magic time period being thrown about, and recent evidence certainly seems to be mounting up. The first piece of evidence is that Lowell McAdam is all set to become the CEO of Verizon, and that he will put an end to their current tough policies — something that stopped them getting the iPhone back in 2007.
Ed Hansberry from Information Week points out that some of Verizon’s demands were a little over the top, which must be eating at them now. It has been suggested that McAdam is the perfect guy to come to an agreement with Apple — one that both will agree on.
We cannot say for certain that the Verizon iPhone will launch in 2011 or not, but this has to happen soon. Do you think that Big Red will ever get the iPhone?
