Verizion iPhone to launch Nov. 9th?
Yeah yeah. I hear you. But this one if a tad bit different. This is a leaked memo
It may very well be a droid, but I don't see a droid as being iconic. We will see soon enough. But this one part was interesting
Verizon has always mentioned the name of the device in all of its previous corporate emails. It is not known why the carrier has done differently this time. Certainly this mystery device is not the Samsung Continuum, as it is meant to be due for announcement on Sunday.

This is for the Droid Pro. There will be no iphone on verizon til late next year.
Why release the iphone 4 when the iphone 5 will be out in a matter of months.
Verizon is rolling out LTE. Which is GSM not CDMA. Waste of technology to release iphone before LTE is totally rolled out.
-No iphone til late 2011. I really hate these iphone rumors.

Verizon has also said that LTE won't cover all of the suscribers until about 2013:
Verizon On Track For 4G LTE Rollout -- Verizon LTE -- InformationWeek
Are they really going to wait that long? They put it on Verizon to get it in people's hands. If they want to upgrade a few months later to the i5, then that's up to them. Believe it or not, some people may decide to not buy the i4 and wait for the i5, while some may get it on day 1 and then upgrade to the i6. News flash: Some people don't upgrade every year.
The point is to get it in their hands. Doesn't matter to me anyways, I am not leaving AT&T.

Alot of the Apple haters have it right when they say that people are like zombies when it comes to new Apple stuff...where they get it wrong is the reasoning behind it...its not brain washing, its just people who love tech toys and want to be on the leading edge of what is new and fresh.
Verizon will have a 3G iPhone 4 fairly shortly...people will flock to get it, and then the new iPhone will release, and people, again, will flock to get it.

LTE will not be in the iPhone until version 6, that has been confirmed by someone at Apple.
Also, there won't be any lawsuits if there is one phone released in January and another in June/July. Lawsuits won't happen. If you think they will, take a look at people who bought the Moto Droid, only to have the Droid 2 come out 7 months later (not to mention the Incredible coming out a few months after the original Droid). Not one lawsuit that I've heard of. And Motorola even discontinued the original Droid within 6 months of its release. Apple won't discontinue the iPhone 4 when the iPhone 5 comes out, just like the 3GS is still out now.
Those that are early adopters will buy the next phone at full price if they want it...or Apple will negotiate with the carriers (like it did with the iPhone 4) and give everyone a chance to get it at a cheaper price.
But like I said, I had a felling it was for a droid device. Just real funny they said "iconic" and I personally don't find the droid "iconic" .
As for the lawsuit part. I highly dobut there would be any lawsuits. Buying an iPhone from ABC from 123, and then 3 months later 989 starts selling it does not really qualify for a "lawsuit"

Here's the bottom line. The writing is on the wall for a verizon iPhone. They already sell an iPad, while not CDMA. They have an agreement in place to sell something Apple, so the iPhone can't be too far behind. Maybe not January, but sometime in the first quarter. And it will be CDMA even though LTE is in the works. Just like EDGE initially and then went to 3G. 3G was available, just a technical decision.

What really ticks me off is close minded people. "oh it wont happen. Apple does the iPhone in June"
While that may be true, it doesn't mean it will always be the case. Apple could always change things up. I think they did that once before with a mac event in late August (instead of October) and even an iPod event in mid september. (instead of the first week) and the said apple event was not on a Tuesday, but rather a wednesday.
I do remember the iPhone price drop. Back in June 2007, you pretty much paid full price for the phone. A lot of people were very unhappy, and no, there were no lawsuits.
I do think we will see an Verizon or even a sprint iPhone in 2011. We don't really need Apple to confirm anything.

Please, EArly does not mean FIRST QUARTER. Early means the first couple months. otherwise they would have said FIRST QUARTER.
Also, there have been stories out (more prevalent since the Verizon iPhone news came out) that Apple has been developing a CDMA iPhone along with the GSM one all along. It's not that farfetched that they could release it to manufacturing very, very quickly.

Nothing from Jobs, most likely because this source was not authorized to talk about it; but here's the article that started the LTE iPhone stories:
