iPhone to Verizon?

January 7, 2011 23:36:39.271

I have to say, I'm surprised - I didn't think the iPhone would come to Verizon until LTE was rolled out - but the WSJ says that a CDMA based device is coming:

The iPhone is finally coming to Verizon Wireless. The largest U.S. wireless carrier will make the long-awaited announcement at an event Tuesday in New York City, a person familiar with the matter said Friday.

Personally, I'd rather stay with the GSM based phone; if I go overseas again, it will actually work. But that won't matter to a lot of people.

Here's what I'll be looking for: will the iPhone on Verizon sport a Verizon logo, or will it be like the one I have - and just have the Apple moniker? Mind you, I won't be surprised if there is no iPhone on Verizon announcement after all :)

Update: Engadget has a piece on this, and makes some good points about how this may not be the ideal time to buy a Verizon iPhone - you may well want to wait for summer. Follow the link, and read all the way to the end.

My thought about this news is that Verizon doesn't think their other offerings (Android) can compete with the average consumer.
