That is the question on hand for the Wall Street Journal in today's Verizon iPhone story.

The Wall Street Journal continues its focus on the rumored Verizon iPhone. As reported the WSJ pushed again the Verizon iPhone rumor short before the Verizon LTE press-conference on Wednesday. Verizon denied at the event that an Verizon iPhone is near. The Wall Street Journal kept at it after the event and today opens a story about the Verizon iPhone with: "The real question about a Verizon iPhone is no longer whether it will be available sometime soon. It's whether it will be an iPhone 4G."

4G means LTE on Verizon. The Verizon 4G network will launch this year in 38 markets but only with data cards. LTE Phones are supposed to come in the first half of 2011. The Wall Street Journal thinks that an LTE iPhone would be the way to go. Because a CDMA iPhone might actually proof to be slower than an iPhone on AT&T.

Of course a LTE iPhone is sexier, but 38 markets is just not a lot of coverage, which means a limited amount of buyers.
