CDMA iPhone 4 codenamed N92, in engineering verification test for possible January (Verizon?) debut

Daring Fireball has revealed that the CDMA iPhone 4 is codenamed N92 and is entering the engineering verification (EVT) stage, one step before the design verification test (DVT) stage, which is right before manufacturing -- and right on time for a possible January 2011 launch.

Apple releases iOS 4.0.2 for iPhone, iOS 3.2.2 for iPad, kills Jailbreakme.com, PDF exploit
