Jobs Comment Prompts Verizon iPhone 4 Gossip

A comment about a Verizon mobile phone tower on Apple premises has led to hopes that the iPhone 4 will be coming to the network provider in the near future, technology blog LA News Monitor has reported.

While addressing a press conference at Apple's Cupertino headquarters to discuss the reception problems reported with the iPhone 4, CEO Steve Jobs mentioned that the company has towers for both AT&T and Verizon at its premises.

While responding to a reporter's claim that he was unable to repeat the "death grip" on his BlackBerry, Steve Jobs maintained that the phenomenon does not occur in places with strong signal - such as Apple’s headquarters.

He stated: “We’ve got a strong signal here, we have both AT&T and Verizon towers on campus.”

Although the presence of a Verizon tower on the campus is not an indication that Apple has a deal with Verizon to sell its iPhone, the casual comment has prompted much speculation from industry watchers on the presence of both network towers.
