It's official, Verizon is getting the iPhone. The phone will launch Feb. 10 for the standard $200 price of the 16GB model with a two-year agreement, $300 for the 32GB version.

After years of waiting, it seems like Verizon customers will finally get the iPhone. Speculation swirled around Apple and Verizon after the communications company announced it had a "major announcement" scheduled for Jan. 11.

The general consensus among the media and blogosphere is that Verizon's iPhone will be a CDMA version of the phone. Gizmodo reported that a white version of the phone might be available. The Wall Street Journal is also reporting that customers buying the iPhone will have an unilimited data plan available.

Verizon's iPhone is believed to be coming out in the first week of February.

Again, this is all speculation. We'll have to wait until tomorrow's 11 a.m. news conference for  details.
