Well it’s Thursday morning here in Boston. The big news yesterday was that Verizon will roll out an uber-fast 4G wireless network all over the place by the end of the year.

If you’re like one news editor, who shall remain nameless, who wussfully buckled this year and switched from Verizon to AT&T to grab the iPhone 4, you’re outta luck.

That’s because the rumors are spreading, once again, that Verizon will have an iPhone 4 very soon as AT&T loses its contracted exclusivity on the very best cell phone in the world.

The Wall Street Journal fueled the rumors this week with a report, from nameless sources, saying: “Apple Inc. plans to begin mass producing a new iPhone by the end of 2010 that would allow Verizon Wireless to sell the smartphone early next year, said people briefed by Apple.”

We have no idea who these people are. We do not know whom Apple chooses to brief, when they brief them, how the briefings are conducted, and if there is any kind of religious ceremony involved with burning of saintly cards and cutting of hands.

So tell your friends you read it on Blast Magazine: the iPhone is TOTALLY coming to Verizon.

At least, that’s the rumor.
