A Verizon iPhone: Winners and losers

A Verizon iPhone: Winners and losersVerizon Wireless (NYSE:VZ) landing Apple's (NASDAQ:AAPL) iPhone has been a long-standing rumor. But the rumor mill kicked into high gear recently with both the Wall Street Journal and the New York Times reporting that Verizon will, in fact, launch a CDMA version of the iPhone early next year.

Which companies are the winners and losers in such a scenario?   FierceWireless put together this handy guide to the companies we believe will rise and fall should the rumor become a reality.

A crucial caveat to all of this is that a Verizon iPhone is, and remains, a rumor--just one that has been repeated numerous times. Many are skeptical that Verizon and Apple can come to terms for a deal.

With that warning in mind, FierceWireless spoke with a range of analysts and came up with a list of the winners and losers. --Phil
