Online oddsmaker Bookmaker.com says there is a 28% chance that Verizon (NYSE: VZ) CEO Ivan Seidenberg will announce an exact launch date for the iPhone on the company’s network, comments Kym McNicholas for Forbes. Seidenberg will, however, be talking about the phones that are compatible with the Verizon’s new 4G LTE network. Vanguard Telecommunications (NYSEArca: VOX) and iShares Dow Jones U.S. Telecommunications (NYSEArca: IYZ) could surge on any iPhone report; Verizon is 23.9% of VOX and 12.6% of IYZ.

On top of all that, industry analysts believe that competition among tablets will heat up for mobile tech, remarks Jacob Chung for Neon Tommy. Additionally, the tech industry will likely be pushing its 3D technology, web-application-enabled TVs and the integration of gadget-/internet-connected tools for cars.
