Shall we say finally, after all the long run of rumors, Apple and Verizon finally dropping the CDMA version of iPhone. The long winding story will finally ends, (hopefully, crossed your fingers tightly) on Verizon’s special media event on January 11th, that’s Tuesday. We got you the stitched confirmations after the break.
The Wall Street Journal confirms that the Verizon Media Event on January 11th will feature the long rumored Verizon iPhone.
The largest U.S. wireless carrier will say Tuesday that Apple Inc.’s iPhone will be available to its subscribers, according to a person familiar with the matter.
The Wall Street Journal offers no additional details about when the Verizon iPhone will become available to the public.
To be sure that the event results will surely hit the internet, and we’re really makes us feel that this is really Apple related and a definitely BIG announcement MG Siegler of Techcrunch and Jim Dalrymple of Loop Insight—both pretty prolific Apple reporter/writers/bloggers, with some guys at MSNBC, Engadget and others.
Yes we know, there’s Gizmodo missing in the list of invited.
As MG himself notes:
I don’t typically get invites directly from Verizon to anything. At least not that I can recall. They usually send those directly to the MobileCrunch and CrunchGear guys. But this invite appears to very specifically be for me – it’s non-transferable. Would Verizon send me such an invite unless it was specially about Apple?
Unfortunately due to the iPhone 4 leak, Gizmodo have not received an invitation for the event, it feels like the popular tech site has been blacklisted by Apple, even Gizmodo have a pretty good relationship with Verizon.
Here’s what’s key: We’re great friends with Verizon. (Hi guys!) We’ve worked with them for years, and we’ve been to like every event they’ve had over the last three years. We haven’t gotten an invite. Which is weird. We’ve reached out to Verizon to see why, exactly, we weren’t invited, but we’ve gotten no comment yet. (Update: Verizon’s official response is a big ol’ no comment.)
All Things Digital reports that Apple CEO Steve Jobs is likely to be present at Tuesday’s media event.
While the appearance isn’t 100 percent assured, sources in position to know tell me that, barring any unforseen circumstances, Jobs will likely join McAdam onstage in New York when he announces the addition of the iPhone to its handset line-up.
In the most recent report of WSJ, we can expect the Verizon iPhone to be released by near the end of January according to their source related to the matter.
Now after all, we got few more days, until our wish will gone to reality, yes, bring that CDMA iPhone out!
Tomorrow Apple and Verizon will break or not the Verizon iPhone, and we got here some new updates that really take our attention. And it’s just few hours, hold on.
