Apple iPhone on Verizon arriving November – Rumour

Yesterday a rumour about Steve Ballmer speaking at WWDC 2010 for 7 minutes surfaced from an analyst. Microsoft [MSFT] quickly shot the rumour down saying it was false. So now when we hear things from analyst’s we also have to take it with a pinch of salt, just like this next rumour.

We now hear that Verizon [VZ] will be getting the Apple iPhone in November, just in time for the holiday season. The information comes from Ashok Kumar who said the Verizon iPhone does and will exist. A company called Pegatron will be making the iPhones ready for shipping late this year. We have heard before that 10 million iPhones are being prepared for shipping on the Verizon network, so it’s not a new rumour.

The only hurdle that needs to be crossed is that of a 5 year exclusivity agreement between Apple [AAPL] and AT&T [T] which is due to end in 2012, not late 2010. If this has some how been cancelled then we can see this happening, but until that happens I think Verizon will be waiting a while longer.

I really don’t think we are any closer to knowing for sure even with analyst’s making predictions, so for now we’ll just accept it as rumour.
