    It appears that Apple has sent out memo's to all retail Apple store locations letting their employees know that they are putting a blackout/freeze in all vacations for a 3 week window starting with the last week of January.

    What is the reasoning for this? Logic and tradition seem to suggest that Apple only does this when a huge product is launched and they need all hands on deck. In addition to the vacation blackout they've kept all holiday season employees on hand to assist.

    Our only guess as to what this could be would be the Verizon iPhone launch (or possibly the iPad 2, but that's not likely) - so.... all things being equal this seems to be yet another confirmation that Apple and Verizon have been working on this iPhone together.

      Verizon is a CDMA based (as opposed to GSM) carrier in the US. It's nothing remotely interesting for the rest of the world :)

      I heard today that iPhone's are on sale for $49! With a two year contract.

      Is there a two year contract with Verizon like AT&T?

      I am with you. I am about to purchase a Samsung Vibrant tomorrow because my Blackberry Bold 9700 is being left behind in the dust. I can't take it anymore.

      I will be pissed if it comes out for T Mobile!:confused:

      AND, the "Refurbished iPod" page of the Apple store lists all six units with "Special Limited Time Price."
