Thanks to a tip from ‘geeker darren.wlsn1 we’ve got word of brighthand reporting Pegatron Technology is going to start manufacturing CDMA handsets in Shanghai and get them over to the states in time for a Q4 release this year.
During this year’s World-Wide Developers Conference (WWDC), there were many rumors afloat regarding a Verizon iPhone, but Steve Jobs didn’t comment one hint as to the validity of these rumors.
It’s no secret that AT&T has has major problems with their network both dropping calls and managing data, and have even started tiered prices and capping data. A Verizon and/or Sprint release would be cataclysmic in the mobile world, and the sales of the device could even surpass Android once again.
We have heard rumors of CDMA iPhones before, and have yet to see anything concrete!
If this is the real deal, will the people on Sprint/VZW jump ship and grab a new iPhone 4 on their network?
macstories.net has released the following graphic showing the iPhone 4 has 512MB of RAM, twice the amount of the 3GS and the iPad.
Those of you who own either device knows how fast and smooth they run, with twice the RAM and the A4 chip this phone looks to be devoid of lag time, coupled with the fact that the reports are that iOS 4.0 is much smoother and more efficient than any previous iPhone OS.
If Sprint adds this to their arsenal along with the Galaxy S and the Evo, and VZW to compliment their Droid armada, then this will be a huge market push for CDMA as well as Apple.
There were previous reports that Apple and AT&T have renegotiated their exclusive contract with the iPhone in the U.S.
What do you think about this? If you’re on Sprint or VZW would you want this added? If on T-Mobile or AT&T will you jump over to CDMA?
