Verizon iPhone launching on January 11th?

Yes, you heard me right. In just 4 days, Verizon is rumored to be launching their own iPhone. Gizmodo’s got some decent evidence as well. First of all, they wrote about how MG Siegler of Techcrunch and Jim Dalrymple of Loop Insight (two well known Apple bloggers) were invited. MG had this to say: I don’t typically get invites directly from Verizon to anything. At least not that I can recall. They usually send those directly to the MobileCrunch and CrunchGear guys. But this invite appears to very specifically be for me – it’s non-transferable. Would Verizon send me such an invite unless it was specially about Apple? Here’s the main thing though. Gizmodo and Verizon are tight. Giz always covers their events and everything. This time? No inviation for Chen and the gang. Why? It’s AN APPLE EVENT. No WAY Steve Jobs would let Gizmodo into that event after the whole iPhone 4 leak ordeal. So, what do you think? Verizon iPhone? Or no Verizon iPhone? Read more »
