Verizon Wireless already said earlier this year that they see the Apple iPhone on their 4G network in 2010. A rumor about Verizon and Apple already testing a new iPhone on the Verizon Wireless 4G LTE network sneaked its way through the Motorola Droid coverage over the weekend. MacTouchUser points to a report on Fone Frenzy that says that Verizon Wireless CEO Lowell McAdam has been at the Apple headquarters several times and that indeed Apple is testing a CDMA iPhone on the Verizon 4G LTE network.
MacTouchUser also infers that Verizon and Apple are also testing the rumored Apple Tablet, because of an old BusinessWeek article.
In any case for Verizon it would be a great asset to be able to offer Apple devices, this would create an almost unbeatable offering in the United States. Verizon is said to have the best network and the Apple iPhone is considered by many the best smartphone.
Verizon Wireless will be the first carrier in the United States to roll out LTE (Long Term Evolution) based 4G network starting next year. LTE promises to be 10x faster than current 3G services, low latency (cool for multi-player gaming), enhanced security, world-wide roaming, and more. Verizon has setup an LTE innovation center here.
