Apple "is conducting high-level discussions with Verizon Wireless to sell a version of the iPhone that would work on Verizon’s network," according to the New York Times. Talks heated up two weeks ago. The phone could be available next year. It is not clear if the first model would be CDMA or LTE, although sources say a CDMA version has not been ruled out. Company spokespeople declined to comment, but did not deny the talks. AT&T's exclusivity on the iPhone is rumored to expire next year.
