According to BusinessWeek, Apple may unveil the highly anticipated Verizon iPhone or the CDMA version of the iPhone 4 before Valentine’s Day. BusinessWeek cited “a person familiar with Apple’s plans who is not authorized to discuss them publicly” that Apple nor Verizon will be announcing the iPhone 4 in Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas in 2011.
"Apple’s introduction of an iPhone for use on Verizon’s network will come sometime after the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas in early January, according to a person familiar with Apple’s plans who is not authorized to discuss them publicly."
Because of the involvement of Verizon, analysts speculated that that between one and six million AT&T customers will switch to Verizon once it become available. Apple’s business partnership with Verizon will definitely hurt AT&T who exclusively holding iPhone in US market for three years. However, BusinessWeek feels differently:
“Still, even if AT&T loses more than twice as many customers as Hodulik projects, the carrier will not suffer a fatal blow. If 6 million of its customers defect, the $6 billion in lost annual revenue would amount to about 10 percent of AT&T’s wireless sales in 2011, according to UBS projections. The $6 billion would be 4.8 percent of its total projected sales of $126 billion in 2011.”Stay tuned with us.
