By now, you should be really tired of hearing those Verizon iPhone rumors. As a matter of fact, Ivan Seidenberg; the CEO with Verizon Communications had recently indicated that a Verizon iPhone was not likely until the carrier moved to its new 4G network that will not be until later next year. However, that doesn’t seem to have dampened the rumor mongers as the Wall Street Journal has now reported that Apple is now working on a CDMA iPhone that will launch on Verizon early next year.
Citing people “familiar with the matter“, the WSJ has noted that “Apple plans to begin mass producing the new iPhone by the end of the year, and it would be released in the first quarter of 2011“. These new iPhones are expected to look pretty similar to the newly launched iPhone 4 though it would be based on the alternate wireless technology supported by Verizon.
Since such anonymous people familiar with the matter have been speculating a CDMA iPhone for years now, it is not a bad idea to stay skeptical for the moment. What do you think?
