Apple Plans to Offer iPhone on Verizon

October 8, 2010

SAN FRANCISCO - Facing intense competition from phone makers wedded
to Google's Android software, Steven P. Jobs, Apple's chief
executive, finally plans to make the iPhone available on Verizon
Wireless, the largest wireless carrier in the United States.

After more than three years of using only AT&T cellphone networks,
Apple is now making a version of the iPhone 4 for Verizon's network,
according to a person who is in direct contact with Apple. Apple and
Verizon will begin selling the phone early next year, said the
person, who agreed to speak on condition of anonymity because the
plans were supposed to be confidential and he did not want to
alienate his contacts at Apple.

Apple and Verizon Wireless declined to comment.
