Apple iPhone 5 to be a World Phone with dual-mode support of both CDMA and GSM
According to the guys at Tech Crunch, an iOS developer, who remains anonymous but has come up with some of the most well loved apps on the platform, passed along some evidence that shows that the Apple iPhone 5 will be a dual-mode "World Phone". The developer apparently sent Tech Crunch some app usage logs that show that a small number of developers were registering their application from a brand new dual-mode Apple device.
The logs show these app testers were using what is most likely a Apple iPhone 5 running iOS 5 and carrying two separate sets of mobile network codes (MNC)/mobile country codes (MCC). These codes are used to identify mobile carriers. When the app was being registered, the device used was logged as a new Apple device with MNC/MCC codes from both AT&T and Verizon. This would indicate that one device is being manufactured by Apple for both U.S. carriers. While this would offer seamless roaming between both types of networks, it probably also means that as already expected by most, the Apple iPhone 5 will not support LTE connectivity.
