Just a quick update to quell the naysayers: The Wall Street Journal, who published the report of Verizon selling the iPhone in 2011 yesterday, has changed the wording on the opening paragraph of the article. Previously, it was a bit vauge, only saying that the CDMA phone would “allow” Verizon to sell the smartphone. The revised phrasing removes any doubt over what the report is implying, and makes it quite clear that the WSJ believes that Verizon will get the iPhone.
AT&T Inc. is about to lose its lock on the iPhone.
Apple Inc. is making a version of its iPhone that Verizon Wireless will sell early next year, according to people familiar with the matter, ending an exclusive deal with AT&T and sharpening the competition with Google Inc.-based phones.
There you have it.
