WSJ Says Verizon iPhone This Year, New Form Factor Next Year [Update]

Posted October 6, 2010 at 3:03pm by iClarified
The WSJ is reporting that Apple will begin production of a Verzion iPhone this year, and that the fifth generation iPhone will have a new form factor.

The new iPhone would be similar in design to the iPhone 4 currently sold by AT&T Inc. but would be based on an alternative wireless technology called CDMA used by Verizon, these people said. The phone, for which Qualcomm Inc. is providing a key chip, is expected to be released in the first quarter of next year, according to the same people.

Separately, Apple is also developing a new iPhone model, said people briefed on the matter. One person familiar with the new iPhone plan said the fifth-generation iPhone will be a different form factor from those that are currently available. It was unclear how soon that version will be available to Verizon


Kaufman Bros analyst Shaw Wu has just issued a report stating that Apple is working on larger and smaller iPhone models which could be released as early as 2011.

Now tell us one we haven't heard. Of course Apple is testing a new iphone do you think they come out with these 1 week before announcement? They've surely got the iphone 5 well underway and may even beginning to draw up designs for iphone 6. That's how business works it takes time to go through the development process.

verizon will not offer the iphone, no matter what everyone else says, qualcomm can make gsm chips as well as cdma, just because apple ordered a bunch of chips , doesn't mean that they are cdma, and apple wouldnt restrict their sales to only the us, with a very small cdma market as opposed to the world standard being gsm, so there , any questions
