And there was much rejoicing.

We've been hearing rumors of a Verizon iPhone for a long time now. Now though, it seems like the mythic beast could be nearing a very real launch. John Gruber, the most knowledgeable blogger on the subject of Apple, has openly stated that he believes the project to be in development.

"But I do know that engineering-wise, the wheels are turning on N92, the CDMA variant of the iPhone 4. It’s certainly not in production yet, and hasn’t reached DVT status (device verification test — like Gray Powell’s infamous stolen unit), but it is, a few little birdies claim, at EVT (engineering verification test). That’s one step below DVT, which is one step below production."

Based on this timeline, Gruber believes that the Verizon iPhone for is set for launch at some point in January. We are likely to see the reveal at CES 2010, with a sales starting near the end of that month. This is all still unconfirmed, but Gruber has a better reputation on Apple rumors than just about anyone else out there.
