Verizon Wireless is inviting the press to a special event on Tuesday morning in New York, hosted by president and COO Lowell McAdam. Could this be the long-awaited announcement of the Verizon iPhone?
That looks to be the case, at least according to All Things D’s sources. A Verizon iPhone announcement would be the culmination of years of speculation and anticipation.
In recent months, we’ve been privy to clues of the phone’s imminent arrival, and earlier this morning Boy Genius Report confirmed that Apple has blacked out employee vacation requests from February 3 to February 6. This news gives further credence to the notion that Tuesday will be the big reveal.
It is a bit peculiar, however, that Apple would let Verizon make the big announcement. Perhaps Steve Jobs will make a surprise appearance.
We’ll update this post when we know more about the event. Until then, let us know if you think Verizon will announce the Verizon iPhone on Tuesday.
