Both Apple and Verizon are all set to announce a CDMA version of iPhone 4 on February 3rd, reports BGR.
AT&T has been exclusively holding the iPhone for three years now, and it looks as if it’s finally going to come to an end soon. Apple is expected to announce the Verizon iPhone in early 2011. BusinessWeek reports that the announcement may not take place at CES 2011, but shortly afterwards, either by or before Valentines Day i.e. February 14th.
Rumors for a CDMA-based Verizon iPhone for 2011 are getting stronger and stronger by the day. We’ve previously seen claims from Bloomberg, Wall Street Journal, TechCrunch and today, Wall Street Journal has gone ahead and called it a settled deal.
This year is getting fired up with a lot of rumors and people are expecting a bunch of new gadgets from Apple. Digitimes is now reporting that Apple is going to launch new Apple TV with iOS, iPads and a CDMA iPhone on Verizon early next year.
CDMA version of iPhone on Verizon has been rumored for years, so much that probably now no one believes it anymore, unless of course Steve announces it in one of those events. Now if the latest round of rumors from TechCrunch are to be believed, we could very well see the CDMA version of iPhone on Verizon as early as January 2011.
There were strong rumors regarding CDMA version of iPhone 4 before the official unveiling of the said device at WWDC 10. Steve didn’t mention a thing about CDMA version of the iPhone 4 even though there were tons of rumors floating around. And now according to fresh reports from Digitimes, a CDMA version of iPhone 4 will ship in the fourth quarter of this year!
According to the latest round of rumors, Pegatron (a subsidiary of ASUStek) is said to have won the bid to manufacture the CDMA version of the next Apple iPhone and that it will be available on Verizon Wireless this fall. If this news that we are hearing is true, then it will certainly bring smiles back on the faces of all the AT&T haters out there. A report from Digitimes speculates the following.
