    Default CDMA iPhone Could Become Major Mobile Player in Asia


    Apple may want to really ramp up iPhone production if the latest reports out of Asia are accurate. According to various published reports Thursday, the forthcoming release of the Verizon iPhone has enticed major cellular carriers in both China and India to jump on the iPhone bandwagon. As DigitTimes noted, Apple will need an unprecedented supply of iPhones to meet this demand, as the company is already scheduled to begin supplying the CDMA iPhone in massive numbers overseas this year, including to Japan and South Korea.

    China Telecom - the nation's third largest mobile carrier - and India's Tata Teleservice are CDMA networks now believed to be in talks with Apple to bring the iPhone to their networks. China Unicom, which is a competing GSM network, can barely accommodate the iPhone 4 orders presently on its slate. As demand for the touchscreen handset continues to grow, Apple - according to market analysts - will have no logical reason to exclude prominent CDMA networks in heavily populated locations throughout Asia.

    Verizon's announcement Tuesday rocked the mobile industry in the US. And it now appears that Apple's foray into CDMA territory will lead to record iPhone production and sales across the global landscape. In the United States alone, the CDMA iPhone is expected to double the number of current iPhone users in the market, according to the same report from DigiTimes.

    lol those are GSM phones. Who runs the photoshop department around here anyway

    The white has a certain clean look to it. I've converted four to white and sold them before eBay started cracking down. Kinda wanna convert my personal one now.

    Worst part (by far) is the headphone jack. That thing is a major PITA because of the way its folded and how the ring/mute switch goes in. Other than that its really pretty quick and painless.

    I was making a killing off them ($4-$500 profit per phone) but Apple cracked down and eBay pulled my listings and warned that further listings would result in suspensions. So.......I quit lol.

    ... about a year ago or so, it was at under 200. It may still be a good time to buy. I bought Google stock at about what Apple is now and saw it climb to 700. If you do plan on buying Apple stock, do so in stages.

    The fact that verizon is getting an iphone is no threat to at&t. The fact that cdma technology that has neen obsolete for over 20 years is incapable of browsing the net and talking on phone simultaneously will greatly put verizon buyers of the iphone in a state of buyers remorse. I will never switch to verizon for the simple fact that they falsely advertise to their customer base. 3g & subsequently 4g are impossible to achieve on a cdma or tdma platform. I know this from a college education and military experience in the matter. In order to achieve 3g or utms you have to be on a gsm platform and to get the split signal 4g better know to people of intelligence as hsdpa and hsupa must also be on a gsm platform with a minimal requirement of high packet transfer on general packet radio sevice which is the basest form of gsm technology. Something neither sprint nor verizon have. I know i used to work for verizon. So i will stay put with a carrier who is CAPABLE of delivering a true 4g to my iphone so i wont have to make sacrifices. The only reason verizon is getting an iphone(a stripped down model at that) is because apple got tired of hearing the verizon people cry about not having iphones. So now verizon gets one "just to shut them up".

    As for asia.... Asia is gsm just like europe and the rest of the world. The u.s. Is the ONLY country with this obsolete technology still in use.
