Verizon iPhone: What Do We Actually Know?

Photo Courtesy - PRNewsFoto/Pierce Promotions(NEW YORK) -- The mythical Verizon iPhone. Though no official will confirm that it exists, it's still one of the most buzzed-about topics in the blogosphere.

In late September, Verizon CEO Ivan Seidenberg downplayed the possibility of an iPhone joining his network anytime soon, suggesting the company would wait for an iPhone that could run on its new fourth-generation network. But in recent weeks, the reports of a near-term fantasy phone have returned to center stage.

Citing anonymous sources, The New York Times and The Wall Street Journal reported in early October that Apple would release a Verizon-compatible version of the iPhone in early 2011. About a week later, the tech companies added more fuel to the fire when they announced that Verizon would start selling Apple's iPad. Since then, the rumors have continued to roll out.

Verizon declined to comment for this story and Apple did not immediately respond to a request for comment, so what can we actually believe to be true?
