Qualcomm and Apple collaborating on a new iPhone: more rumors
After a rumor from November said that a GSM/CDMA iPhone using Qualcomm’s hybrid chipset is in the works, now DigiTimes, citing market sources, informs that the chipset manufacturer is indeed in talks with Apple for a future cooperation. The reason is reportedly found in the fact that Qualcomm is concerned about its market share and thus has decided to seek collaboration with Apple, which currently gets its chips from Infineon.

Other big players on the smartphone market, RIM and Palm, are also relying on other chip suppliers, Freescale and Marvell respectively. Qualcomm is currently working intensively with HTC, Samsung and LG, but you know what they say - the more, the merrier.

iPhone is trying to build GSM/CDMA handset for Verizon, Verizon must never carry the iPhone because iPhone ads insulted and criticise the Verizon services and why Verizon should carry iPhone for all those ads criticism. For me I will never use a product that insulted and criticise my business services. No iPhone for Verizon let the iPhone lovers stay where they are AT&T. Verizon will not make lot of business out of iPhone any way it will created more problems traffic jam in the network.

are you referring to verizon's maps campaign? cuz i dont think they were insulting the iphone itself... just the network it was on and how bad the coverage on at&t looked compared to verizon. but if verizon were to carry the iphone, then vzw would most definitely be the #1 ideal network to be on.

If there is an iphone for verizon with all the ad bashing there are doing would have to think that apple makers are verizons bitch thats like telling someone that there girlfriend is fat and then asking them asking them to coming over to dinner and they show up acting like you never said she was i guess money rules everything around me dollar dollar bill would never respect apple if they do that sound like there talking about the iphone in there new ad where is apples back bone suckers guess verizon runs the world

I would like introduce you to my friend the period. He separates thoughts and prevents nasty run-on sentences! Use him now and again, and your comments will take on a whole new level of readability -- you'll even look more intelligent just by using them!

then again, the "droid does" campaign does fit what your saying. dont listen to me lol. but yeah, come to think of it, that is a little contradicting. but i still think vzw would be the ideal network if they carried that phone.

I think they were reffering to the apple commercial bashing on Vzw's service [that whole talk and browse web thing]. I for one don't think apple is making the iPhone for Verizon, just because the phone is somewhat dated in the tech world. If apple is making something for vzw specifically, I'm leaning more towards that tablet idea or the iPhone lite, or maybe they'll surprise everyone and just pop out a netbook.
