Apple on Wednesday invited select press to a special press conference to be held this Friday in California.
Apple would only say that the press conference would be regarding the iPhone 4. No other information was available when I spoke with them tonight.
Could this possibly be the first time that Apple has held a press conference for something other than to announce a new product? One such theory by Dan Rubin is that Apple will finally announce the availability of the iPhone on Verizon. This would ultimately change the conversation to something positive – misdirection if you will – because Verizon has the most robust mobile network in the states. But what about the international people complaining about the iPhone 4 and its antenna reception issues?
Whatever happens on Friday, it should be very interesting. I imagine a lot of folks would welcome the iPhone on Verizon but I’m not buying it. However, and this is a big if – maybe this is why the white iPhone is taking so long to manufacture – because its the fabled CDMA version for Verizon?
