"Today, we're bringing to market the fruit of our strategic partner with another giant of the high tech industry, and that's Apple," McAdam said.

The official announcement brings an end to months – if not years – of speculation about the widely-revered phone.

The Verizon iPhone will be a version of AT&T's iPhone 4 and will be available starting Feb. 10. Certain Verizon customers will be able to pre-order on Feb. 3, according to the announcement.

Apple COO Tim Cook said the Verizon iPhone will be everything customers expect of Apple, and more. Among the feature, the Verizon iPhone will include Facetime, retina display, HD video recording, and Apple's custom designed A4 chip.

"Most importantly, an integrated experience that's far beyond what anyone else is providing," Cook said.

The Verizon iPhone will run $199 for the 16GB and $299 for the 32GB. Verizon iPhone 4 will also allow customers to connect up to five WiFi devices using the iPhone's data connections.
