Verizon iPhone rumors are so 2010. (Early 2011 is going to be all about the Apple iPad 2 rumors.) Still this one is too intriguing to pass up, so bear with us. According to Boy Genius Report, Apple has "blacked out employee vacation requests between February 3rd and February 6th" – a span of time that just happens to include the Feb. 6 air date for Super Bowl XLV, otherwise known as the most-watched TV event of the year.

Otherwise known as prime real estate for advertisers.

So if you buy the BGR scoop – and you can read between the lines a little bit – you can see why a lot of bloggers are sure that Apple and Verizon are planning to use the 2011 Super Bowl to unveil the Verizon iPhone. Or the two companies could be planning to unveil the thing before the Super Bowl, and then buy up a bunch of Super Bowl airtime, and really hammer the message home.
