There is very compelling evidence that suggests Verizon (perhaps alongside Apple) will be announcing an iPhone on Tuesday, January 11th. Gizmodo is quick to point out that while they are buddies with Big Red, they haven’t been invited to the event—probably due to their breakup with Apple.
Sources have also confirmed that Apple has blacked-out employee vacation requests from February 3rd to the 6th, which indicates a major product launch.
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. -Wall Street Journal
This is it.
