The 2011 Verizon iPhone is to be announced tomorrow (Tuesday, January 10th), with a Verizon iPhone release date at the end of the month. At least that is what the overly-pumped up rumour mills are saying, and, it seems, with good reason. Verizon themselves sent out invitations to a special announcement event scheduled to be held in New York City tomorrow morning, at 11:00 a.m. EST.
According to sources, Verizon will announce the CDMA iPhone tomorrow, and will start selling it during the last week of the month.
Relatedly, it is being said by some industry sources that Apple has told their retail employees that they need all hands on deck, with nobody to take vacation, during that last week of January.
Tech site ars technica received one of the invitations, and posted it to the ars site (despite the fact that the invitation clearly requests that it not be posted – oops – we’re guessing that ars may find itself off Verizon’s ‘A’ list!) You can see the Verizon invitation here.

While nobody has officially confirmed the Verizon iPhone yet, there have been enough leaks, and enough signs, that it has become the currently worst-kept secret in the industry.
The Wall Street Journal today quoted “a person familiar with the matter” in saying that Verizon will be offering an unlimited data plan for its iPhone.
