For those of you still eager to hear more news regarding a new CDMA iPhone on Verizon’s network, we have an update for you now. A follow up on the WSJ reveals that the move may not go ahead due to high subsidy costs.
A recent note from Kaufman Bros. analyst Shaw Wu has suggested that Verizon may be put off entering into any agreement with Apple, as a result of the long term costs.
The report states that Verizon may need to pay Apple double if not triple the subsidies that it currently pays other smart phone providers.
