iPhone for Verizon: Release date still a mystery

Only a few days ago Bloomberg started the iPhone for Verizon debate again, with news of a release date in January 2011. The rumor of a Verizon iPhone has been going since the first-generation iPhone launched in 2007.

Some users are willing to buy a Verizon iPhone, and others will “Only” buy one if it was on that carrier. Bloomberg stated that this rumor came from “people who declined to be named”, and while they could be correct, we highly doubt they are.

After four generations of iPhone, none have had this release pattern. WWDC has always played a part, and we would suggest a June 2011 release for a Verizon iPhone to be more on target, if it comes in 2011 at all. The real launch will stay a mystery for a while yet.

Thoughts on this?
