My take on recent verizion rumors
while they been saying a Verizon compatable iPhone for years, I really think the recent round of rumors may be true. AT&Ts contract is just about up, and the recent rumors have been reported, not by some random tech site or blog but rather reliable, trusted sources. All three have been around a long time, longer then some of the kids who visit this site have been alive.With LTE rolling out and on top of the iPhone 4 drama, early 2011 may be a perfect time. They may not even have to have a June launch. (They will save that for Mac OSX lion) Remember, they don't have to launch the phone in June. They can change it to any time they want.

It's true. This recent set of rumors does seem the most feasible, but I have to take this with a grain of salt. Verizon's been close with apple lately, which could point to a deal - but it may simply be a deal to get people to stick with verizon and not switch to ATT, because they're banking on an iPhone coming soon...

For what it's worth, the Wall Street Journal has reported a Verizon iPhone in the past and nothing has come out of it.
I'm not saying that it won't happen. Competition between carriers will be a win for Consumers.
I do know this: LTE won't be in the iPhone until version 6 at least (been reported from Apple already), but LTE is a worldwide standard, not just Verizon. 3 out of the 4 carriers in the US are going to it, and I've heard about a lot of other carriers (European mostly, but I'm sure Asian as well) that are also going to it, so it definitely makes sense.
