Apple iPhone 4   Coming To Verizon Wireless In Spring 2011 | Rumor

Okay, at one point or another during the last 4 years, we have seen this rumor take on more “supposed resurrections” than Elvis himself. So why is this latest rumor more credible than others? First, its from a pretty reliable media source, http://bloomberg.com” target=”_blank”>Bloomberg Television, and of all things, a business news outlet with a huge influence on how the market performs, day in and day out. Second, the information came from Ashok Kumar, a senior technology analyst from http://rodmanandrenshaw.com/” target=”_blank”>Rodman & Renshaw, and not some chat rooms or forums. Third, several business reports, included on from http://goldmansachs.com” target=”_blank”>Goldman Sachs, have indicated the same.   Still not convinced?

During a brief telephone conversation on TV, the analyst and Bloomberg anchors itemized several factors on http://apple.com” target=”_blank”>Apple‘s move from the sole carrier format, that would be http://att.com” target=”_blank”>AT&T, to both AT&T and http://verizonwireless.com” target=”_blank”>Verizon Wireless. Here is the breakdown:

  • The market share of http://apple.com/iphone” target=”_blank”>Apple iPhone has hit its peak with AT&T and needs “greener pasture” to graze on
  • With the increase in popularity of Android phones, Apple is making a strategic move to slow down its encroachment.
  • The analyst, who confirmed with 2 unnamed inside sources, mentioned Apple recently signed up Taiwanese tech outsource firm, http://asus.com” target=”_blank”>ASUSTek‘s Pegatron Division, to produce the CDMA variant of the iPhone 4, a wireless protocol used by Verizon Wireless.

For those disgruntled AT&T customers, who stayed through the thick and thin.  This could not have come at a better time.  That is if it is true. No set dates yet, but most analysts have mentioned the launch on Verizon Wireless to be as early as January of 2011.

Thanks a lot "Verizon" their website showed an android phone and mentioning a double antenna design so in case if one antenna fails there's another! This is like making fun of the iPhone 4. Verizon should remove it from their website before Apple sees it.

Verizon said they don't want the iPhone, they are sticking with Android.

can't come soon enough! AT&T in Hawaii is good, but a move to the mainland next year will suck with AT&T. I hope they somehow make the iPad that flexible as well...
