Verizon iPhone is Real, Apparently; CDMA Version Coming in January?
The folks of Tech Crunch have a nifty piece on the rumored CDMA iPhone, that’s supposed to come to Verizon in January. Rumours about a device of this kind have been available on the web for a while now, but no confirmation was available till now. This time the proof comes from Qualcomm, who is building the CDMA chipsets for the new handset version.
Apparently, the company is increasing the production of such chips, in order to meet the demand for the new iPhone version, that’s supposed to sell 2 or 3 million units in the first few weeks, according to experts. Apple has already ordered millions of units from Qualcomm, with the Verizon iPhone being due in December and the launch apparently fixed for January 211.
Also, word on the street is that the CDMA Apple phone will be available without the famous antenna issue, that’ll be corrected by then.
