More iPhone on Verizon Rumors

Mashable/Apple: “Evidence continues to mount to support expectations that Apple’s iPhone 4 will finally launch on Verizon this coming January. The latest: Sources close to Apple’s hardware suppliers say that Apple has ordered millions of CDMA chipsets from Qualcomm. CDMA is the wireless technology used by Verizon.”

I guess we’ll find out some time in 2011, but the article says Apple should receive CDMA chipsets in December in time for a January 2011 ship date. That doesn’t jibe. I can’t see them shipping mass quantities of iPhones in January if they receive chips in December. That’s not enough lead time in my humble opinion. But, hey, maybe their manufacturing is super efficient and ready to roll out large quantities of phones? Also, why CDMA? That seems like the wrong technology? I could buy an LTE based phone, or a CDMA/LTE phone, but a straight CDMA phone seems off.
