Verizon CEO Lowell Mcadam confirmed that a CDMA (non-LTE) version of the iPhone 4 is coming to Verizon Wireless early next month.Apple’s Chief Operating Officer Tim Cook explained the Verizon iPhone 4 will connect to the CDMA 3G network and has all the same features as AT&T’s iPhone: FaceTime, Retina Display, 5 megapixel camera, and HD video.
Our relationship with Apple has developed over the last two years. In 2008 we started talking about bringing the iPhone to a CDMA network. We spent a year testing. Late in 2010 we started offering the iPad… today, we are extremely gratified to announce that the iPhone 4 will be available early next month.
Current Verizon customers will be able to pre-order on February 3rd for the standard $200 price for the 16GB model on a two year agreement, $300 for the 32GB version — everyone else can order on February 10th (see it compared with AT&T’s iPhone 4). Just to clarify and put any wild rumors to bed, the phone is Verizon 3G (EV-DO) only, no 4G data or GSM roaming.
