The news just in is that Verizon will begin offering the iPhone from January 2011.
There's no official confirmation yet but if the rumors are to be believed (and they seem credible) then AT&T's exclusive grip on the handset, which has existed since the iPhone was launched back in June of 2007, is set to come to an end.
Verizon has almost 93 million customers and is currently investing heavily in a high-speed fourth-generation data network.
No matter how you cut it, this is going to give Apple iPhone sales a boost of a few million (analysts suggest some 3 million) in that quarter.
So, who wishes they'ed waited for that upgrade?
