Apple Rumored To Release iPhone Through Verizon

Good news for iPhone users that are fed up with AT&T. Apple is reportedly set to release a new iPhone 4 by the end of 2010 that will work through Verizon next year.

The Wall Street Journal reports: “Apple Inc. plans to begin mass producing a new iPhone by the end of 2010 that would allow Verizon Wireless to sell the smartphone early next year, said people briefed by Apple. The new iPhone would be similar in design to the iPhone 4 currently sold by AT&T Inc. but would be based on an alternative wireless technology called CDMA used by Verizon, these people said.”

This would be the first time that Apple would break out of its exclusive partnership with AT&T since the iPhone launched in 2007. It might mean better service for those in areas where Verizon has better coverage than AT&T and could help Apple alleviate some of the bad connotations from “Antennagate.”
