Rumor: iPhone Headed to Verizon in January (for Realsies)


One rumor that refuses to roll over and play dead is that Apple's iPhone is headed to Verizon. Assuming you're interested in an iPhone in the first place, this sounds like a win-win proposition, if it comes to fruition. Citing "two people familiar with the plans," not only is it going to happen, but relatively soon, as in January 2011, Bloomberg reports .

"Apple is going to dramatically increase the number of devices it sells in the U.S. when exclusivity at AT&T ends," said John Hodulik, an AG Analyst. "It's hard to ignore the quality issues that AT&T faces."

It's also hard to ignore the exclusivity contract between Apple and AT&T, even though all the rumors up to this point seemingly do. Unless Apple and AT&T have come to some sort of altered agreement, the two sides are tied to each other until 2012.
