Apple to use Qualcomm chips in iPhone 5 and iPad 2
We already heard reports, like those from the Commercial Times, that the 5th gen iPhone would have Qualcomm chips. A Taiwan news source now also reports that Qualcomm, among others, has been selected for the iPhone 5 and iPad 2 components.

Taipei's Economic Daily News published a list of component suppliers for the next Apple devices: baseband chips from Qualcomm, CPU from Samsung, Wi-Fi chip from Marvell, Flash memory from Intel, touch screen controller by Broadcom, audio chip from Wolfson, video display interface chip from National Semiconductor/Infineon, Bluetooth from CSR and power management from TI.

There was no mention as to a Sprint or Verizon iPhone, but the Qualcomm baseband chips are definitely a good sign.
