Verizon iPhone 4 rumors flourish as analyst tips CDMA manufacture in Dec 2010

The CDMA iPhone 4 rumors continue to circulate, with Susquehanna Financial Group analyst Jeffrey Fidacaro latest to speculate on the Verizon version of the Apple smartphone.  According to his latest investor note, his checks with overseas suppliers indicate Apple is on track to produce three million CDMA iPhone 4 handsets in December, with a launch likely to take place in early 2011.

The speculation comes on the heels of Credit Suisse research that suggested 23-percent of current AT&T iPhone subscribers would consider jumping to Verizon were the Apple device available on their network.  As for GSM sales, Fidacaro believes the component delays in iPhone 4 displays has been alleviated, and that will allow Apple to sell 11.6m handsets in the fourth fiscal quarter.
