RUMOR: 3G/4G hybrid Apple iPhone may come to Verizon this summer

invisibleSHIELD case for iPad“An unusual rumor this afternoon has a Verizon-ready iPhone shipping in the summer,” Electronista reports.

“Multiple Verizon staffers and other sources claim the CDMA iPhone would not only be ready in the summer but that it could be a launch device for the availability of Verizon’s 4G network,” Electronista reports. “While questionable, the Engadget details are billed as ‘surprisingly specific.'”

Electronista reports, “It would most likely be a hybrid phone with both 4G as well as CDMA and 3G if real, as Verizon doesn’t plan to cover more than 25 to 30 cities with LTE on launch.”

  1. Anybody that any stock in the continual flow of Verizon/iPhone rumors is a droid.

    Not going to happen until Verizon’s LTE network covers more than “25 – 35” cities. Period.

  2. It continues to amaze me that people spout and even believe this stuff. Forte last time, ahem:
    VERIZONS NETWORK DOESN’T SUPPORT VOICE AND DATA AT THE SAME TIME! THUS NEGATING ONE OF THE iPhone’s GREATEST FEATURES! IT IS A DIFFERENT AND INCOMPATIBLE CELLULAR TECHNOLOGY WITH ALL APPLE PHONES PRODUCED TO DATE. THIS WOULD REQUIRE APPLE TO MAUFACTURE TWO DIFFERENT PHONES FOR A VERY SMALL PERCENTAGE OF THE WORLD MARKET, WHICH MAKES. NO. SENSE! AT. ALL.

    This has been a very loud PSA for the deaf and dumb who continue to spout and believe this garbage.

    MDN word: had, as in: had Verizon given apple what they wanted in the first place, and not been morons, these rumors would not exist.
