Reports of the iPhone coming to Verizon are nothing new, but this time there is a little more credibility to the claim. The Wall Street Journal has said that Apple will be releasing an updated iPhone as usual in the June or July time frame along with plans to bring the iPhone to a CDMA carrier such as Verizon. Apparently there are different manufacturers being involved to manufacture the CDMA verison of the iPhone.
The model that has CDMA capability, used by Verizon Wireless, is being manufactured by Pegatron Technology Corp., the contract manufacturing subsidiary of Taiwan’s ASUSTeK Computer Inc., said these people.
While this is still a rumor, the WSJ’s reports on Apple rumors are usually more credible than not. That said we will have to wait until the summer to know for sure.
