Verizon iPhone 4 Is Official, Launches February 10th

It’s official, Verizon will be launching the iPhone 4 beginning early next month.

Starting February 3rd, existing Verizon customers can pre-order for the February 10th launch date for everyone. Pricing will be the normal $199 for 16 GB and $299 for 32 GB with what appears to be the same data plans Verizon requires for their other smartphones ($30 unlimited, $15 for 150 MB. This still though may change. UPDATE: Verizon has been making a point to clarify that no data plans have been announced yet for their iPhone 4, so as we wrote above, it may be the same as any other Verizon smartphone or it may have new data plans. We’ll keep you updated once they announce final pricing).

As for what type of iPhone it is, it’s the same black iPhone 4 AT&T’s had for months just with the ability to use Verizon’s network (with some antenna changes to reflect this– let’s hope this also gets rid of the antenna problems of the first iPhone 4) and a new Personal Hotspot feature that let’s you finally turn your iPhone 4 into a WiFi hotspot for up to 5 devices (so you can share your iPhone’s Verizon 3G with your laptop, friends iPod, etc.). Otherwise, same 5 megapixel camera, Retina Display, front camera for video chat, etc.

And yes, its like every other Verizon 3G phone so you can’t do a call and go online at the same time.
