October 19, 2010, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

We have fresh information for those of you who are waiting anxiously for the Verizon iPhone. New reports are suggesting that the device is now in its final testing stage, and that the CDMA version of Apple’s device will be ready for retail release sometime in the near future.

The new info has emerged courtesy of a report from BGR, who got hold of it from one of their sources close to Apple. According to the report, the iPhone model 3.2, which has been assumed by everyone to be the Verizon (or at least CDMA-compatible) phone, has just hit the “AP” testing stage. For those of you who don’t know, the AP testing stage is the very last stage before retail release.

The new info suggests that the January 2011 launch date that was rumored earlier could actually be true.

The sources have also revealed one other info that is interesting. The device will be coming equipped with a SIM card slot. This backs up previous speculation that the Verizon iPhone will have support for both CDMA and GSM networks, so the device will be able to operate on all the four major US carriers.

More details about it can be seen at the BGR website. Hit the source link and check it out. Let us know your thoughts on the new information. Do you think that the device is coming sometime soon?
