Verizone iPhone
New York, Jan 12: After months of rumors and speculations, the Verizone iPhone has been surfaced. The much awaited Verizon iPhone 4 was launched on Tuesday, Jan 11. This new smartphone from the largest wireless carrier in United States will be available by Feb 2011.

Verizon became the second the carrier for iPhones in United States after AT&T launched the iconic smartphone in 2007. The most remarkable difference of Verizone iPhone from that of AT&T is that it's a CDMA version.

Unlike the rumors, the new iPhones from Verizone would not support the 4G LTE network. The reason why Verizone selected CDMA is that it does not want to make changes on iPhone which will be essential to carry on LTE network. Also the Verizon iPhone won't allow customers to use voice and data at the same time.

Verizone iPhone Features and Price:
* Price - $199 for the 16GB device and $299 for the 32GB device with a two-year contract.
* WiFi mobile hotspot option - connectivity with 5 devices
* Data plan - $15/month (150MB), $30/month (unlimited)
* Availability - Feb 10, 2011

However, the new CDMA iPhone is not exclusive for Verizone which means we can expect more iPhone from other carriers like Sprint, if Apple is interested.
