iPhone on Verizon Network Soon, Says WSJ
The announcement had to be big; after all, it's set for 1/11/11 at 11 a.m. Eastern time. And as our sister blog Engadget pointed out in their post about the matter, this would make the fifth year in a row that Apple, despite having no presence at the tech world's annual festival of newness, became the biggest news at CES.
On the BGR site, Boy Genius Jonathan Geller posits the iPhone will launch on Verizon's network February 3. Why? There's a vacation freeze for all U.S. Verizon outlets from February 3 through 6, Thursday through Sunday, theoretically for the big flood of customers coming in to buy the newest toy available on their home network. In other rumors, Steve Jobs may appear at the Verizon event; Sprint is crying in its beer; and Android is a dying breed.
