Verizon Interested in Carrying the iPhone


Verizon CEO Ivan Seidenberg says the company has told Apple that it wants to carry the iPhone, reports the Associated Press.

He declined to say when — or even if — the popular smart phone will be available for Verizon Wireless customers.

In remarks Tuesday before the Council on Foreign Relations, Seidenberg cited a recent Wall Street Journal report that said Apple is working on a version of the iPhone that would be compatible with Verizon’s network.


” For the first time, Seidenberg confirmed that he has told Apple that he wants Verizon to carry the iPhone, adding that “we’re open to getting the device,”and that “our network is capable of handling it.” What he wouldn’t say, obviously, is whether Verizon would be getting the phone, saying simply that it’s “Apple’s call.”
