iPhone on Verizon rumor revived, again According to a new report from Digitimes, a CDMA-capable iPhone for the Verizon network is already being manufactured and will be ready to ship in time for the 2010 holiday season.
The report says contract manufacturer Pegatron already has an order from Apple for the CDMA iPhone 4, and the company is "currently using its plants in Shanghai, China, to produce the products."

A Wall Street Journal report earlier in the year said the same thing, that Pegatron had already been contracted.

An iPhone for Verizon has been rumored, on and off, for years now but earlier this month a Verizon spokesperson said: "We have no plans to carry the iPhone in the immediate future." That being said, it is likely an iPhone 4 for Verizon is in the works, but unlikely that it is coming as soon as a few months from now.

There is also still the possibility that Apple and AT&T signed an iPhone exclusivity pact until 2012, which would clearly make it impossible, at least without a breach of contract, for a Verizon iPhone this year.
