Verizon iPhone Release: Web erupts in excitement

The rumors and speculation surrounding the possibility of the iPhone coming to Verizon have been going for quite some time now, but nothing has ever come from it. Well that is until now anyway, because it appears that it really is on its way this time.

According to a report at pcworld.com, the Verizon iPhone release has been slated for January 2011, or it may even be sometime this summer. Either way, it is meant to be guaranteed this time. And as you can imagine, the web has erupted in excitement over the news.

The Verizon iPhone rumors may well have died down recently, but they were reignited this week thanks to a new report at Bloomberg. However, as with many of the other rumors, the information on the Verizon release has come from “people familiar with the plans.”

But if you take a look back at some of the previous Verizon iPhone release reports, you will see that it’s been going on since September 2008. At that time, rumors claimed that the iPhone was going to make its Verizon debut in the January of 2009.

Following that, rumors then suggested a release of early 2010. Then in October 2009, another report suggested that it would arrive late 2010. Another report in January 2010, said that it may have been that month, but still nothing.

The rumor mill was still churning in May of this year, when reports suggested early 2011. And now we have the latest, which says January 2011. Are we to believe it, or do we just take it as yet another rumor? Either way, there are plenty of people waiting for its release.
