Another CDMA iPhone Rumor. Could It Be Right?

According to the somewhat accurate DigiTimes Apple has awarded a contract to Pegatron to build a CDMA iPhone. This iPhone would run on Verizon Wireless or Sprint, though with Sprints fascination with Android OS and the “iPhone Killer” the HTC Evo (see Nicolas Wiggins post), I doubt that it will be on sprint right away, Verizon has also expressed it’s desire carry the iPhone after it refused an Apple offer for the first iPhone. It has been speculated that AT&T’s exclusivity contract has been on its last legs for sometime. AT&T will most likely receive the iPhone 4G wich is to be released early June possibly at WWDC ’10. This would be a change for Apple, they not only have never built a CDMA device, they will be changing manufacturing companies. Apple currently uses Foxconn, the manufacture that builds the iPhone 3GS, MacMini, iPod, and iPad, Foxconn is the companies main supplier. Now the CDMA iPhone concept is nothing new, it has had rumors since the very first iPhone that was announced on AT&T. If the iPhone is released to Verizon I can only guess how much Apple slaes of the device will go up, the iPhone would also be able to fully honor its 4G name as Verizon is releasing their version of 4G soon, this network will cover even the most rural parts of America says CNET, though I obtained all my information regarding Verizon 4G from Verizon sales directly. Though none of this is certainty. The company DigiTimes has been some what accurate in manufacturing for Apple, though the company has had a terrible track record with everything else Apple related. The original story as reported by Appleinsider can be found here.

    The Zune concentrates on being a Portable Media Player. Not a web browser. Not a game machine. Maybe in the future it’ll do even better in those areas, but for now it’s a fantastic way to organize and listen to your music and videos, and is without peer in that regard. The iPod’s strengths are its web browsing and apps. If those sound more compelling, perhaps it is your best choice.

    • I have been thinking about getting a Zune HD for some time, I guess since I have like 7 iPods (of various age), an iPhone 4, and a Moto Droid, I don’t really need one. I admit they are really nice though.
