CNET News Video: Highlights from the Verizon iPhone announcement

2:24 /

Verizon President Lowell McAdam, Verizon Wireless President Dan Mead and Apple COO Tim Cook announce the iPhone 4 at a press conference in New York City.

-Okay. I guess by the looks of all of you here in the room, you're expecting a big announcement today. I don't think we'll disappoint, but I think it also proves the old adage in the press. If the press writes something long enough and hard enough, eventually, it comes true. Collaboration between industry leaders is the engine for progress and innovation in the wireless market. And today, we're bringing to market the fruit of our strategic partner with another giant of the high-tech industry and that's Apple. And today, we are extremely gratified and I can't think of a better word to announce that early next month, the iPhone 4 will be part of the great Verizon Wireless portfolio of products. -And so I'm incredibly happy and I call tell you all of Apple is very, very excited to bring the iPhone to Verizon's 93 million customers and new customers who want to use the iPhone 4 on Verizon. We're incredibly pleased to give Verizon customers the choice they've been waiting for. We've designed an iPhone 4, which connects to Verizon's CDMA/EVDO network; and it has all the features that you would expect. -So now I bet you're wondering when and what is going to happen next, so let me give you a little bit of background on this. On February the 3rd, Verizon Wireless existing customers are going to have an exclusive opportunity to pre-order the iPhone 4 online ahead of general availability. One week later, on February 10th, the iPhone 4 will launch to everyone at Verizon Wireless online, Verizon Wireless stores as well as at Apple stores and Apple online. Verizon Wireless agents in a matter of weeks will then be coming onboard in carrying the device as well.
