Verizon iPhone 4 officially announced

The Verizon iPhone 4 has been officially announced. The official announcement of the Verizon iPhone 4 marks the end of AT&T being the only operator offering the iPhone in the US. The Verizon iPhone 4 is to work on the Verizon CDMA network and expected to be released sometime in February 2011.

Verizon have had the iPhone in testing for their CDMA network and the phone has been proven capable of working on the Verizon’s network. Since it’s an iPhone 4, you’ll definitely get the same features including the FaceTime video call, Retina Display etc. The only difference is it connects to the CDMA network instead of GSM. And some more, the data plan will be cheaper in long run for heavy users, which they’d be offering unlimited data plan for just $30 per month.

Verizon have also increased their network capacity in order to cope with the load that the iPhone 4 will bring. Many were expecting the Verizon iPhone 4 would tap on the 4G LTE network of the operator, but unfortunately, the current hardware of the iPhone 4 isn’t capable of 4G network connectivity. The 4G LTE involves the use of LTE chip which requires small design changes which Apple do not want to make and will make the roll-out longer. Therefore, CDMA was opted instead of LTE.
