Verizon set to release the CDMA iPhone4 on February 3rd? Employee vacation time blocked

BGR has with a source close to Apple that the company has blacked out vacation requests between 3rd and 6th — Thursday through Sunday. The four-day vacation has been confirmed to be in effect in several regions in the United States. A recent report suggested the vacation black-out would cover a period of three weeks beginning in late January and extending into February, which still could be true in some regions.

Back in June of last year, Apple picked the dates of 24th to the 27th for its 4 weekend launch — also a Thursday through Sunday. In addition, Wireless typically launches new devices on Thursdays. WhileBGR has not yet confirmed that the Verizon iPhone is the device we’ll see debut on the 3rd, the timing lines up very well with previous reports; no other Apple products have been rumored to be launching in this time frame.
