Sources are reporting that AT&T's stranglehold on the iPhone will end in January.
Bloomberg cites two anonymous sources said to be familiar with the Verizon iPhone plans who says the iPhone will be available with Verizon in January.
Earlier this month, Verizon wireless company's CEO Ivan Seidenberg said a Verizon iPhone was Apple's call. No official comments have been made either from Verizon or Apple to indicate that anything has changed, which is not surprising given that would sabotage upcoming product launches planned until the iPhone were to arrive.
Verizon is the largest wireless carrier in the U.S. with nearly 93 million subscribers. Analyst John Hodulik estimates Verizon customers could buy 3 million iPhones a quarter.
Though the Wall Street Journal previously reported a CDMA iPhone would begin production in September, Verizon is rolling out it 4G LTE network late this year into 2011. Verizon's testing has realized speeds nearly 10 times faster than its current 3G network which is CDMA EV-DO.
If the report is true some the roughly 2 million who flocked to Apple and AT&T could have buyers remorse given one of the biggest consumer wishes has been for a Verizon iPhone.
