Verizon Wireless has sent out invitations for a special press event which will be held in New York City on Tuesday, January 11, 2011. Verizon is rumored to announce CDMA iPhone at its mysterious event which is expected to launch on February 3rd.
According to Wall Street Journal, Verizon will indeed announce the iPhone at its Tuesday event, according to “a source familiar with the matter.”
All Things D claims that Apple CEO Steve Jobs will be making an appearance at this event.
Verizon Wireless’s Tuesday iPhone announcement will be headlined by President and COO Lowell McAdam, but there will likely be a special guest as well.
Apple CEO Steve Jobs.
While the appearance isn’t 100 percent assured, sources in a position to know tell me that, barring any unforeseen circumstances, Jobs will likely join McAdam onstage in New York when he announces the addition of the iPhone to its handset lineup.
Other interesting things to note here are the date of the event ‘1/11/11’ and Gizmodo (of iPhone 4 prototype fame) was not invited. Apple has, once again, managed to be one of the biggest stories at CES with zero presence.
