Verizon iPhone Launch: Feb. 3? It appears so, based on a few clues By Evann Gastaldo, Newser Staff Posted Jan 7, 2011 12:43 PM CST 3 comments Comments Verizon users may be able to get an iPhone on Feb. 3. (Photo: Physio-Control, Inc.) (Newser) – It’s the moment Apple fans and AT&T haters have been waiting for: The iPhone appears set to launch on Verizon Feb. 3. A source confirms that Apple has blacked out vacation requests for employees between Thursday, Feb. 3, and Sunday, Feb. 6; a similar four-day weekend was blacked out in June, when the iPhone 4 was launched. Plus, Verizon usually launches new products on Thursdays. BGR stops short of confirming it’s the Verizon iPhone that will be launched, but notes that it does look likely.
