    Default Verizon, Other Carriers to Get iPhone as Soon as March



    To say a lot of people were caught off guard by today's sudden announcement between Verizon and Apple would be an understatement. And, for that reason alone, all attention is turning to the latest report from Brian Marshall, an analyst with Gleacher & Co., who says a Verizon iPhone is similarly "on track" for March of next year. Marshall is the source who stated on record that a Verizon-Apple partnership (in some capacity) would happen long before AT&T exclusivity is dropped for the iPhone. And it turns out he was right, given the freshly announced deal that Verizon will carry Apple's Wi-Fi iPad.

    But Verizon won't be alone on the list of carriers to get the iPhone. "It won't be just for Verizon," Marshall said. "There are international carriers that use CDMA, like KDDI in Japan, so I expect that Apple will make a big global push, not only in the U.S." If the carrier expansion is to ultimately happen, a veritable tidal wave of iPhone sales could result both domestically and abroad.

    Marshall's sources - Asian parts suppliers - are lending credence to what the Wall Street Journal reported last week about Apple mass-producing a CDMA-capable iPhone, and that "Verizon would start selling the device early next year."
    The result? "Apple will sell an additional 11.5 million units with Verizon," Marshall projects, noting that "[Sales at] AT&T would go down only a couple million."

    True or false? One gets the sense that we're about to find out once and for all.

    They are as nauseating as all the super bowl hype over who will win and why. Who @#$@#$ cares. Wake me when it's official.
    Hmm...

    Default CDMA - meh
    Once CDMA customers see their iPhone experience is differnt than GSM customer - like talking on the phone and looking something up on the Internet - GSM carriers do look better....

    Add that to the fact that LTE is coming on-line which will make the resale of year old CDMA iPhones crappy. I sold a 3G last month for $150 and a 3GS for almost $400. Try that with a year old LOCKED CDMA phone....

    I agree with you 100%. I also would like to see how Verizon's networks holds up to all the traffic. I'm not switching to another iPhone carrier until they are proven that they are better.

    With all due respect to MMi, I am getting sick of these "Rumors" and "Reports".
    In the past I have enjoyed coming here for the latest news and happenings in the community. But in the recent handful of months, there has been a bombardment of articles purely consisting of speculations, what if's, and maybes. These rumors provide no facts, and in the end are useless to our community. These "articles" have lowered my expectations of MMi and consequently my enjoyment of the site.
    I really hope that Mr. Essany and the other contributors start taking a more serious and progressive approach to their journalism. It's a shame that some MMi contributors are making a career out of spewing the same thing in so very many different ways.

    I think a lot of people will be surprised to see individuals with iphones on At&T sticking with this carrier.

    The only issue is that the writer plants these useless articles and never bothers to read the feedback.

    It would be nice if my employer, an international network equipment manufacturer, would once again pay for our cell phones. We are supposed to buy our own as a cost saving measure.

    That would be nice, be glad though that they haven't asked you to "find another job" as a cost saving measure..
