Verizon iPhone coming in Q1 2011, says WSJ According to a new WSJ article, Apple is all set to begin manufacturing a CDMA iPhone, one that will be available on the carrier by the Q1 2011.
The phone will be identical to the current iPhone 4 sold via AT&T and other carriers internationally, except using CDMA instead of GSM.

In the United States, Apple has had an exclusive agreement with AT&T since the original iPhone's launch in 2007.

Furthermore, the article cites sources who say Apple is already developing the iPhone 5, one that will "be a different form factor from those that are currently available."

That vague sentence leaves a lot up to interpretation as Apple has never hinted about adding a physical keypad to the device or of significantly changing the form factor.

Verizon, Apple and Qualcomm (the maker of the CDMA chip) have all declined comment.

Wanted one for years but then I found the Moto Droid and will never go back.

Too bad. I was hoping for T-Mobile. CDMA phones suck.

I sure hope that this is like everything else WSJ has ever said...because I am not looking forward to Verizon being slowed down by a bunch of iPhone users.

The key is NOT ever subscribing to Verizon.
