I am pretty sure it is going on 2 years now that we have been hearing “Verizon iPhone confirmed”, but as of late the rumors have seemed to come with more and more information and credibility. The most recent confirmation comes from Fortune claiming that Apple must partner with Verizon, showing us statistical numbers and going on toting Verizon’s billion dollar business history in a gigantic article. When asked the million dollar question, the response was “Yes, Fortune has confirmed that a Verizon iPhone will be released in early 2011″. Not quite sure what to think about this latest confirmation but I do find it very interesting that Verizon is now selling the Apple iPad and I can’t help but think this was a first step which will ultimately lead to the Verizon iPhone dropping at some point in the future. The question is will Verizon be offering a white version? Check out the links below to read the story for yourself and be sure to drop us a comment.
When this Verizon iPhone situation is all said and done, the iPhone will, in all likelihood, go down in the Guinness Book of World Records as the most confirmed, unconfirmed device in electronics-history. In an exposé about Verizon CEO Ivan Seidenberg, Fortune can’t seem to steer clear of Apple and the iPhone. Noting Seidenberg’s success in transforming Verizon from a $13 billion per year business into a $108 billion per year business, Fortune quipps that “every tech company” — including Apple — “must find a way to partner with it [Verizon].” The beginning of the article contains the line that the entire blogosphere, and most of the mainstream media, will latch on to: “Fortune has confirmed that a Verizon iPhone will be released in early 2011.” There it is, your definitive, Verizon, CDMA, iPhone, it’s really happening, rumor of the week.
