Analyst: Verizon, Apple strike iPhone deal


It’s been a few days, so it’s time for another iPhone-at-Verizon rumor. According to a report to clients from Kaufman Brothers analyst Shaw Wu — as reported by “Fortune” (, Apple got the terms it wanted from Verizon for the version of the iPhone expected to be released by the carrier in early 2011.

Citing industry and supply channel checks, Wu writes that he is “picking up that iPhone economics to Apple are likely to be favorable, similar to that offered by AT&T.”

“This is important, as many, including ourselves, have been concerned that VZ iPhone economics could be less favorable given the strength of Android and higher cost of components, particularly those associated with CDMA,” the analyst says.
