Verizon iPhone to Hit Stores Feb 10

NEW YORK — Verizon Wireless and Apple Jan. 11 said

they will launch a CDMA version of Apple’s iPhone 4, confirming what

the mobile tech world has been speculating about since AT&T

launched the iPhone in 2007.

The multiyear deal is non-exclusive. Verizon Wireless CEO Dan Mead

said at a launch event here that existing Verizon Wireless customers

will be able to preorder the Verizon iPhone 4 exclusively online Feb.

3. Verizon’s 3G network will power the handset.

New customers will be able to purchase the device Feb. 10 online and

in stores from Verizon Wireless, and Apple. With new contracts, the

device will cost $199.99 for the 16GB model and $299.99 for the 32GB

model.

“It’s been the worst kept secret that wireless customers have been asking for the iPhone on Verizon,” Mead said.

Apple COO Tim Cook acknowledged the Verizon iPhone 4 handset is

similar to the AT&T iPhone 4, from the FaceTime video chat

application to the crisp Retina display.

The handset also sports the original iPhone 4’s LED flash, HD video

recording, 5 megapixel camera and Apple’s signature glass and stainless

steel design.
