The rumors around Verizon getting the iPhone have circulated since not long after the the phone was announced for AT&T. While the US waits for the iPhone to come to Verizon, it looks like a Verizon employee jumped the gun when getting Photoshop happy for a product advertisement.
Verizon is currently pushing its "Holiday Gift Ideas" webpage with a picture of a Droid X with the iPhone"s Google maps application running. Is Verizon secretly trying to appease Apple by showing how much they want the iPhone? Highly unlikely, its probably a simple Photoshop mistake made by the marketing department personnel who don"t know that there is a difference in the applications on iOS and Android.
While Verizon may not know how to properly Photoshop, we know that the iPhone is still just a rumor for the network. While indications point to a January announcement, for now, this is the closest iOS will get to Verizon on a native device.
