No iPhone at Apple iPad Event. Start Rumors for iPhone 4.0, Verizon in March?

Though we heard persistent rumors that the iPhone would tag along for the iPad ride, neither iPhone 3.2, iPhone 4.0, or anything concerning an iPhone on Verizon were mention during the "Come see our latest creation" event.

Which, we guess, stands to reason if Apple wanted to shine the HUGE spotlight on what they hope will be their 4th business -- the tablet.

It does make us wonder, however, if we'll be seeing Apple's traditional (for the last two years at least) iPhone 4.0 Sneak Peak event in March?

Is that why we didn't see any multitasking or notifications during the iPad demo? No word on... Verizon? Let the rumors commence!

(What, you thought you'd get a break?)
