Verizon iPhone Officially Announced
It’s the moment you’ve all been waiting for.
Well, some of you, at any rate.
Verizon Wireless announced that it will be getting Apple Inc.’s iPhone, as The Wall Street Journal has reported.
Although the coming of the Verizon iPhone is one of the worst-kept secrets in the tech world, there were a few details we were looking out for: Will there be a white iPhone? (No mention of it.) Will there be any word about 4G? (Yes — This phone won’t have it.)
McAdam also hinted at more to come from Verizon's partnership with Apple, including video and 4G. Existing Verizon customers can pre-order the iPhone starting Feb. 3; ordering will be opened to the general public on Feb. 10. Like AT&T's version, a 16GB model will cost $199 and a 32GB will cost $299 with a two-year contract. Unlike AT&T's version, that pesky antenna should actually work: "We had to make changes to work on the CDMA network," says Apple COO Tim Cook. "It's going to work great."
