Apple’s Prototype for the Verizon iPhone Ready for January

August 12, 2010, By Radimir Bobev

The iPhone may be ready to come to Verizon at long last as soon as this January, as Apple are just applying the finishing touches to a prototype for a CDMA smartphone. The device has been codenamed N92 for the purpose of its engineering verification, but according to sources, this is in fact the Verizon iPhone 4.

According to the sources, Apple are preparing to reveal the CDMA version of the iPhone 4 at the ucpoming Consumer Electronics Show in January 2011, and begin selling it towards the end of the same month. The device is currently in the engineering verification phase, which means it’s not quite ready for actual production yet, but it’s nearing that phase quickly.

One curious bit about the leaks is that they aren’t specifying whether the new CDMA iPhone 4 will be bound to Verizon only – considering that CDMA support will enable it to launch on Sprint too, it opens up some interesting possibilities for Apple – let’s just hope they utilize them appropriately.
