It all started with news of a CDMA iPhone running on Verizon will be manufactured by Pegatron in China while a whole new AT&T model, made by Hon Hai Precision Industry, also known as Foxconn. It seems that AT&T’s iPhone monopoly will finally run dry. It has been long speculated that Verizon would be next in line to offer the iPhone. The new iPhone will work with CDMA networks, which include Verizon and Sprint. Sources report that the CDMA model will go into mass production in September.
It also seems that Apple will continue with it summer release theme, the new AT&T model iPhone will be announced on June 22nd and it’s rumored that it will the iPhone HD. There are no real hard specs yet but some think it will include a front facing camera, others think it will include a new larger HD capable screen. It’s only a matter of time before all this officially sorted out, cause we know in the past that the Wall Street Journal has been wrong about Apple product specs. If all this Verizon new is true, that would make the iPhone available the largest carrier in the US, with over 80 million subscribers.
