Verizon iPhone Getting Closer to a Release Date, More Speculations to Confirm the CDMA iPhone

May 13, 2010, By Alex Ion

Verizon aficionados who’ve been let down by the fact that Apple may not be working on a CDMA iPhone may have a reason to get drunk today as we’re hearing more speculations that the Verizon iPhone is actually in the works.

Word on the street is that Cupertino ordered nothing less than 10 million units (annual numbers) to a Taiwan-based company, units that are supposedly being produced as you just opened your first Bud.

According to Taiwanese tabloid Digitimes, who we know are renowned for spreading rumors (some of them unfounded), the new Verizon iPhone will bring cash to Pegatron Technology sometime in August, or September — so does that mean a launch is expected sometime at the end of July, end of September or maybe early next year?

From what we know in 2007, ASUSTeK Computer Incorporated (ASUS) split into three: ASUS, Pegatron and Unihan. But the last few years haven’t been their best for Pegatron who found themselves alone with their own-brand in the contract manufacturing businesses. So could it be that they’re now doing business with Apple?

Another interesting thing is that Pegatron will be listed synchronously with Asustek on the Taiwan Stock Exchange (TSE) on June 24. So could this be just hype? Not if you’re thinking how many people would love to get their hands on a CDMA iPhone on Verizon (for three years now, right?), which means a lot more iPhones sold.

What do you folks think? Will a CDMA iPhone actually launch on Verizon Wireless sometime this year, or maybe early next year?
