WSJ Now Says Verizon Will Carry CDMA iPhone

I don’t think I’ve ever before linked to the same article twice in succession, but the WSJ has completely rewritten the lead to this story:

AT&T Inc. is about to lose its lock on the iPhone.

Apple Inc. is making a version of its iPhone that Verizon Wireless will sell early next year, according to people familiar with the matter, ending an exclusive deal with AT&T and sharpening the competition with Google Inc.-based phones.

They’re saying it’s a done deal. That’s news. What I’m curious about is who leaked the confirmation: someone at Verizon, or someone at Apple? And was it authorized?
