The Verizon iPhone 4 Is Real, Will Be Available Next Month

After several minutes of bragging about Verizon’s networks and partnerships, Verizon CEO Lowell McAdam has just dropped the bombshell: “Today we’re partnering with a giant of the industry, and that’s Apple.”

Boom. “”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.”

And just like that, three years of rumors have finally ended: the Verizon iPhone 4 is coming early next month, and the last major exclusivity deal for the iPhone has crumbled.
