People have been whistling pretty much the same tune for ages, but a new set of iPhone/Big Red rumors have emerged courtesy of USA Today. The paper has reportedly been informed by oh so typical “sources familiar with the situation” (aren’t newspapers adorable) that the iPhone is headed to Verizon in 2010 after AT&T’s exclusivity deal runs out. According to USA Today’s sources, the Verizon iPhone will run on its CDMA network — a notion that had been dismissed earlier as Verizon is planning its LTE roll out starting in 2010. Verizon’s CEO has also made it pretty clear in the past that there will never be a CDMA iPhone offered by Verizon. Then again, getting caught up in this CDMA vs LTE debate is quite irrelevant to most Americans who are more or less praying for an end to the AT&T iPhone exclusivity so that more carriers might offer popular device in the near future.
