Verizon concluded their event held on Tuesday, January 11, 2011, where they announced that the iPhone 4 would be available on their CDMA network. The iPhone is the iPhone 4, however, the breaks in the aluminum siding for the antenna seem to have been rearranged – possibly to address the antennagate issue.
The Verizon iPhone 4 will cost $199 for the 16GB version and $299 for the 32GB version with the capability of it acting as a mobile hotspot for up to 5 additional devices. It is availalbe for pre-order for existing Verizon customers on February 3 and for the general public on February 10 online and in Verizon and Apple stores. Unfotunately it won’t be running on Verizon’s new incredibly fast 4G LTE network. Instead, it will run on 3G, although, being as how a new iPhone will be announced around June, that one might have the capability of running on the 4G LTE network. Other than those new facts, it will have the same features/looks as the current iPhone 4.
We will have full coverage of the Verizon iPhone 4 on February 10. Stay tuned.
