There you have it, folks. Verizon Wireless spokesperson John Johnson (his first name is like his last name!) was asked the following by

“Verizon and the iPhone, what is happening, if anything? What is the status?”

To which Johnson jokingly responded, “No one ever asks that question,” and then went on to say, “No plans to carry the iPhone in the immediate future, but you’ve got to look at the incredible excitement around Android devices.”

So if you’d been hoping against hope that the new iPhone that’s going to be announced on Monday will work on Verizon, it looks like you may be waiting a bit longer. Johnson went on to talk about the HTC Droid Incredible which is, in fact, incredible as a viable alternative.
