Has Apple found a manufacturer to handle an order for 10 million CDMA iPhones?
Here is a story that comes with a warning label, "Take with a grain of salt". According to DigiTimes, Apple has been successful in finding a contract manufacturer to fill an order for 10 million CDMA iPhones for Verizon Wireless. Pegatron has accepted the business, which is supposed to contribute to their revenues in August and September. This dovetails perfectly with recent reports that Verizon has hired an advertising team to work on a campaign for Big Red's iPhone. It would be great if we could get confirmation from Pegatron, Verizon or Apple. For now, those Verizon customers willing to exchange their first born for a CDMA iPhone can hang their hopes on this report. While some Big Red customers have decided that Android phones like the Droid Incredible can do it all, others apparently won't be satisfied until their handset says "iPhone" on the back.

HAHAHA, you are so funny with your slow-rizon comment, but I last read that even with your talk and surf with AT&T, you still have more dropped calls, and are lacking in customer service, that is why I see more and more people leaving AT&T to come to Verizon. So go right ahead and keep your out of date iPhone, and I will continue getting newer and more advanced devices that dont make me have to jump through hoops just to get an app created and put on the market place.

Guess what fanboy i do it everyday, talk and surf the web, check my email or see the trafic on google maps while am in a call. I live in Miami where there's a lot of iphone users and I never experience those fantasy wet dreams of droped calls that going around slow-rizon fanboys minds for years. You like many fanboys easily bash AT&T surf and talk capabilities cuz you never experienced that with slow-rizon or sprint and you never will with that obsolete CDMA network....!!!

Q1 reports show AT&T added more customers so I dont know what you guys are talking about.

Take into count that most of them walking into your store are like moths to a flame with the iPhone, only because they were never shown the idea of an Android powered super machine like the Incredible (which btw, crushes the iPhone in speed and reliability in call quality). But then again, I just did a 5 line port over from AT&T, and they had iPhones, and hated them.

Its customer preference man thats all youre arguing and its a never ending battle.

The stats show people are leaving for AT&T for the iphone - however, it will be interesting to see how this works out in 2 years.

ok, so you want him to stop saying SLOWRIZON and yet you say FAGT&T - you are no better....

He does make a good point - it will be moot someday when Verizon switches to GSM....

Get it right people. LTE IS NOT GSM NOR CDMA it's it's OWN technology.

if cnet.com told you to jump off a bridge because its healthier than eating an orange would you do it?

Well, if you think about it, an orange has citric acid which can harm some people's stomach lines, whereas jumping off a bridge could be bungee jumping, which the only side effects are wind burn and fresh air! Lol

it is funny - in the battle of tech toys - say NINTENDO vs SEGA - NINTENDO won out and SEGA had superior hardware - but nintendo had better marketing and better games from NINTENDO itself - so, the best phone may not win the sales battle...

Yeah, that's like the XBox 360 vs. PS3. PS3 is clearly a better machine. It doesn't have an issue with the red rings of death. However, Microsoft has better marketing and prices. So more people buy a machine they know is going to go bad on them.

Here is a crazy thought: Sprint is going to be the MAN. The new iphone is supposedly 4g and why release a 4g phone on a silly 3g at&t network? Therefore, Evo and iphone 4g on the same network (Sprint) released about a month apart to allow the Evo to steal alot of sales and then all the iphone fannies can go and get their iphone.

yeah they are MAN right now b/c the are the 1st ones to roll at 4g of course that only makes since, but when the other companies pull out 4g as well than what they be back where they started sprint still isn't the #1 or #2 provider so whats that prove
