Several tech news websites are reporting early deliveries of the anticipated Verizon iPhone 4. The fourth-gen Apple smartphones weren't even expected to show up on store shelves until February 10, which means these lucky customers have received their units three days early!

This is slightly surprising for a few different reasons. One is that Verizon received so many pre-orders on February 3 that the mobile provider actually had to shut down the pre-sale for awhile. It would seem likely that Verizon would have trouble getting all (or at least some) of these orders out the door so quickly. Also, Apple usually instructs FedEx and UPS to hold such important orders until the published ship date. But given that this smartphone isn't exactly entirely new (it has been around since June), maybe the Cupertino giant let it slide.
