I imagine everyone wants to hear some news about a CDMA iPhone...although you know that's something only Apple will be able to announce. We shall see what goes down...

I bet Apple will announce it at its MacWorld in the end of January. Here we will see the Thunderbolt, LG Revolution and maybe the Samsung LTE phone. Still can't wait, though

What up jeffdabeat, I don't see them announcing cdma iphone either. I personally am only checking now to see what they come with new phones in general. I'm with AT&T and waiting for the infuse but I love to see what the competition has as well.

It was said that the iPhone was pulled from Verizon's CES showing for the Android line up to get all the attention.

I think a Verizon branded iPhone is a little to late!! Android is stealing all the shine on all carriers!
