Verizon Expected to Announce iPhone Service Next Week


Verizon Wireless is expected to announce next week that it will begin supplying service to iPhones. The Verizon phone will be similar to the iPhone 4 but run on the company's CDMA technology, reports the Wall Street Journal.

The official news will most likely come during the company's press event Tuesday. The invitation to the event was purposely vague, saying only "Join us as we share the latest news from Verizon Wireless" and that Verizon president and COO Lowell McAdam would host at Lincoln Center's Frederick P. Rose Hall.

The move would break AT&T’s exclusive grip as the smartphone’s mobile carrier.

There is no word on when Verizon's iPhone will be available to consumers.
