Verizon today announced that it will finally be carrying the Apple iPhone 4 at a press event in New York City.
"Today we're partnering with a giant of the industry, and that's Apple."

"Wireless customers have been asking for the iPhone on Verizon -- and we're excited to offer this to existing and new customers. I want to tell you how dedicated we are to launch this. Our employees are ready, we've been scaling our shipping systems. We've been scaling our inventory systems."
