Verizon iPhone No Longer a Rumor

That's right, after years of false reports, or maybe just wishful thinking, we've finally got the official announcement that Verizon will be the second US carrier for the iPhone. 

The CDMA phone will be available February 10, and current Verizon customers can preorder February 3.  The device won't be on Verizon's new 4G LTE network, so you won't be able to use voice and data at the same time.  Some might consider this as a fair trade off in exchange for the ability to use the phone as a wifi hotspot for up to five devices though.

The announcement seemed to do a lot reassuring that the company's ready for the release - stating that they've been testing the network for a year now and are currently getting their employees ready for the big day.  Other potentially noteworthy points: no reported antenna issues, no preinstalled Verizon software, and here's a little roundup of pricing comparisons to ATT.
