The new version of the Apple iPhone 4 for use on Verizon Wireless’s cellular network became available for pre-order by existing Verizon customers on Feb. 3, 2011, and will be in Verizon stores for new customers on Feb. 10, creating an alternative to ATandT Wireless for U.S. customers who want an iPhone. Like the ATandT iPhone 4, the Verizon variant, which operates on the carrier’s CDMA 850 / 1900 MHz network, has somewhat enhanced specifications in comparison to the previous generation iPhone 3G S, with a higher resolution display (960 x 640 pixels versus 480 x 320) and camera (5MP rather than 3MP). The Verizon iPhone 4 also supports HD video recording. The front-facing VGA camera on the Verizon iPhone 4 enables video conferences conducted with the “FaceTime” application to be run between Verizon and ATandT iPhones. The Li-polymer battery has the same rating – 3.7 V and 1420 mAh – as found on the ATandT iPhone 4, with Verizon claiming 7 hours of talk time and 300 hours of standby time on its CDMA network. As is true of the ATandT version, the Verizon iPhone 4 supports Wi-Fi 802.11b/g/n (802.11n is 2.4GHz only), Bluetooth 2.1 with EDR, and A-GPS for navigation.
