A number of sources have confirmed to major Apple enthusiast websites that a Verizon iPhone announcement could be coming in less than a week from now. According to these sources, Verizon has issued invitations to major media outlets for an event that is scheduled for January 11th. Not just this, the sources also point out that Apple has been blocking vacation requests from its retail store staff for the duration between February 3 and February 6.
What this could probably mean is that a Verizon iPhone could be announced next week on January 11 and could starting being made available over Verizon Stores, Apple Stores and other retail channels starting February 3rd. Despite rumors about Verizon iPhone making its rounds on and off over the past couple of years, this is the first time we hear credible news as far as launch dates are concerned. And we hope that it’s true this time around.
