Might Apple sell iPhone 4G via Verizon?

This is a big news coming to all those unhappy AT&T customers who are on iPhone. Its rumored that along with Apple Tablet (aka iSlate) big launch at next weeks media event, Apple might also announce plans to sell iPhone 4G via Verizon starting June. Peter Misek, analyst of Canaccord Adams has shared this interesting bit of news and Tech Trader Daily has shared this interesting scoop:

In a research note, Misek thinks there will actually be “two more things,” in addition to the tablet announcement.

1. He expects the unveiling of iPhone OS 4.0.
2. He thinks the company will announce plans to sell the iPhone 4G via Verizon starting in June 2010.

According to Misek, Apple’s supply chain is already prepping for mass production of a new iPhone to ship late in the calendar second quarter, operating on the Verizon network on the CDMA network, but with support as well for the European GSM and HSPA standards. He says and updated 4G phone – he calls it the 4G S – with LTE support will follow in June 2011. Misek says he has no info on pricing for the new phone.

Misek adds that the new iPhone 4.0 OS will support OS-wide multi-touch gestures and multi-tasking, simplify navigation and may offer a new way to sync contacts and calendar apps; he says the OS update likely will be available only for 3G and 3G S phones.
