Broadpoint AmTech Analyst Would Like His Verizon iPhone NOW, Please

jobs_canyouhearmenow-250x205-150x150 June 2010. That’s when AT&T’s iPhone exclusivity contract with Apple expires–according to Broadpoint AmTech analyst Brian Marshall, anyway.

In an interview with Bloomberg, Marshall once again said he believes Apple (AAPL) will bring the iPhone to Verizon (VZ) in the second half of 2010 and forfeit AT&T’s (T) sweetheart carrier subsidy as a result. This is, of course, essentially what he said a month ago, although now we appear to have a firmer date.

“While [Apple] started off with exclusive arrangements in 2007 with the original iPhone launch, the company has since migrated towards multiple carriers per region,” Marshall wrote in an October note to investors. “In our view, diverse carrier support is a key element to driving global penetration of the iPhone. Therefore, we believe the chances are high the iPhone will find its way onto the [Verizon] network in 2H10.”
