Apple, Verizon Offer iPhone 4 Online

iPhone 4: Now on Verizon

Customers that prefer buying in person can get their hands on the Verizon-compatible iPhone 4 on February 10 when the combination iPod and smartphone hits store shelves.

Verizon announced it would be carrying the iPhone 4 at a media event in January. Apple built a new version of the phone that supports Verizon’s CDMA cell technology because all other iPhone models support GSM technology used by AT&T and other carriers around the world, and aren’t compatible with the Verizon network.

Pricing for the Verizon iPhone 4 is the same as the AT&T models: US$199 for the 16GB model and $299 for the 32GB model.
