Wall Street Journal: Verizon iPhone Coming Tuesday

Verizon iPhoneWe know you've been promised this before, so we don't blame you if you don't believe us this time, but we have it on good authority that the long-awaited Verizon, CDMA version of the iPhone will be announced Tuesday at an event back in our wonderful hometown of New York City. Word came in earlier today that Verizon would be holding an event at Lincoln Center, just days after the end of CES. Why wait till after the world's largest electronics show? Possibly because there is one company glaringly absent from the CES proceedings: Apple.

A "person familiar with the matter" told the Wall Street Journal that indeed Tuesday would bring the announcement of the Verizon iPhone, and AllThingsD is reporting that Steve Jobs will be making an appearance at the event. It's a little strange that Apple and Jobs would let Verizon take the reins on the event, but we've also heard the Apple has issued a restriction on vacation for retail employees for three weeks starting at the end of January. So will the Verizon iPhone actually be announced on Tuesday and go on sale early in February as the rumors suggest? Check back Tuesday to find out.
