It’s time for some new info on that elusive iPhone for Verizon. We’ve previously heard on two separate occasions that production will start before the end of this year. And while that certainly is reassuring, the problem is that up until now there wasn’t one credible rumor about when the smartphone will be out in Verizon shops.
Today a research analyst, citing Asian parts suppliers, told Computerworld that the CDMA iPhone that Verizon will sell will become available early next year, probably in March. This reasearcher, Brian Marshall, also said that the CDMA iPhone will not be an exclusive to Verizon, but would be sold by other carriers that run CDMA networks – such as Japan’s KDDI.
If all of this turns out to be true, Verizon may be on track to sell 11.5 million iPhones in 2011, according to the same analyst’s models.
The increased density of rumors that we’ve seen recently regarding a CDMA iPhone could very well mean that this is finally about to happen.
