Verizon iPhone Launch Date: February 3rd?
A new report from BGR claims that the launch date for the Verizon iPhone is set for February 3rd. Citing “a source close to Apple,” they point to blacked out retail dates for employees vacation requests “between February 3rd and February 6th — Thursday through Sunday.” This is significant because “Back in June of last year, Apple picked the dates of 24th to the 27th for its iPhone 4 weekend launch — also a Thursday through Sunday.”
While this should be considered a rumor, BGR has been dead on with leaks and launch dates in the past.
This all comes just days after an alleged iPhone 5 video appeared on YouTube before being taken down. Some claimed the device in the video was a Verizon iPhone, but the device did show a sim card slot which raises more questions than answers.
