When this Verizon iPhone situation is all said and done, the iPhone will, in all likelihood, go down in the Guinness Book of World Records as the most confirmed, unconfirmed device in electronics-history. In an exposé about Verizon CEO Ivan Seidenberg, Fortune can’t seem to steer clear of Apple and the iPhone. Noting Seidenberg’s success in transforming Verizon from a $13 billion per year business into a $108 billion per year business, Fortune quipps that “every tech company” — including Apple — “must find a way to partner with it [Verizon].” The beginning of the article contains the line that the entire blogosphere, and most of the mainstream media, will latch on to: “Fortune has confirmed that a Verizon iPhone will be released in early 2011.” There it is, your definitive, Verizon, CDMA, iPhone, it’s really happening, rumor of the week.
