Verizon iPhone: Live Blog

NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- The No. 1 wireless carrier Verizon ( VZ) finally announced the availability of Apple's ( AAPL) iPhone Tuesday, marking the first time that the iconic phone is offered in the U.S. from a provider other than AT&T ( T).

The phone will start selling on Feb. 10 for $199.

While Apple CEO Steve Jobs didn't make the cross-country trip, his COO Tim Cook joined Verizon chief Lowell McAdam to preside over the New York City event, held at a swanky Lincoln Center hall.

Investors hoped that McAdam would address some burning questions associated with the Verizon iPhone, including the damage it might cause to Verizon's margins and the potentially dampening demand due to the forthcoming 4G iPhone 5, but the questions weren't asked during the event.
