WSJ's article relies on the usual anonymous sources, but offers the best evidence yet that years of will-they-won't-they scuttlebutt may finally come to an end January 11.
"The Verizon phone will be similar to the iPhone 4 but run on the carrier's CDMA technology," the WSJ reports, dashing hopes that Verizon could get the first 4G iPhone.
