iPhone On Verizon? I Think The WSJ Jumped The Gun.

With Apple developing a phone with CDMA capability, its exclusive U.S. arrangement with AT&T dating to 2007 appears set to end.

First of all, they say it like it’s fact, when all they have is a source said to be “briefed by the company”. Hmm, yes, those sources are always accurate.

In addition, even if Apple is working on a CDMA-based phone, it’s just as likely a TD-SCDMA phone for China as one for Verizon in the US. Verizon’s 80M customers pale next to China Mobile’s 500M.
