Verizon *Officially* Announces The iPhone 4 Coming in Early February
After months (years?) of speculation, Verizon Wireless held a press conference this morning officially announcing the coming of the iPhone 4 to their network next month:
“We are pleased to introduce millions of wireless users to the industry leading iPhone 4 on the nation’s most reliable network,” said Lowell McAdam, president and chief operating officer of Verizon. “This is an important step for the industry as two great companies join forces to give wireless customers one of the most important technological additions to the mobile landscape this century.”
“Verizon Wireless customers have told us they can’t wait to get their hands on iPhone 4, and we think they are going to love it,” said Tim Cook, Apple’s chief operating officer. “We have enormous respect for the company Verizon has built and the loyalty they have earned from their customers.”
Pricing is $199 for 16GB, $299 for 32GB, same as AT&T.
Verizon has also posted a FAQ about the coming of the Verizon iPhone 4.0 which can be found by clicking here.
I’m going to reserve my thoughts on their announcement, and my level of interest in switching from AT&T to Verizon until I’ve had more time to digest the news from Verizon’s media event.
