For those of you who have been following in the last week and the rumors associated to leaked iPhone 5, Verizon iPhone 4 images, the important news is the Verizon iPhone 4 will be exactly as the iPhone 4 on AT&T. However it will be operating on the Verizon CDMA Wireless technology. The second essential bit is Steve Jobs will be there on stage with Lowell McAdam, President and COO of Verizon Wireless.
