Verizon iPhone. Those two words almost pain my ears at this point, but the Wall St. Journal is wheeling them out once again. After many false starts, they have the Verizon iPhone happening in September after an initial launch on AT&T this Summer:
The people briefed on the matter said one of the new iPhones is being manufactured by Taiwanese contract manufacturer Hon Hai Precision Industry Co., which produced Apple’s previous iPhones. The model that has CDMA capability, used by Verizon Wireless, is being manufactured by Pegatron Technology Corp., the contract manufacturing subsidiary of Taiwan’s ASUSTeK Computer Inc., said these people.
Obviously no one would comment on the story but AT&T did manage to chuck this one out there:
“There has been lots of incorrect speculation on CDMA iPhones for a long time. We haven’t seen one yet and only Apple knows when that might occur,” said an AT&T spokesman.
