Verizon iPhone 4G, Sprint and the Pegatron CDMA Contract

By Alan Ng - May 13, 2010

Yet more Verizon iPhone 4G rumors to share with you now, as it has been reported that Taiwanese company Pegatron Technologies has secured a contract with Apple for a CDMA version of the iPhone 4G.

As reported from Apple Insider, the rumors have surfaced from this DigiTimes article, which suggests that Pegatron may even take over from, or work side by side with FoxConn, the company which built previous versions of the iPhone and also handles Apple products such as the Mac Mini, iPod and iPad.

The article also suggests that the CDMA-equipped iPhone 4G could make its way to Sprint, along with Verizon, and that the recently reported exclusivity deal that AT&T has with Apple could be void.

As usual though, nothing has been confirmed and Apple Insider point out that Digi Times has a track record for getting things wrong in the past.

What are your thoughts on this particular story though? Do you believe that Pegatron will build a CDMA iPhone for Verizon or not?

    Why would u want an iPhone when you can get an evo or a DroidX

    I wish there would be a concrete and clear announcement from Apple, so iPhone less Verizon customers like me would be able to make a decision before having to switch to AT&T.

    yah the fastest network is sprint! its good to have iphone 4g with sprint

    I agree, put it on Sprint. Verizon is creating a tablet with Google to compete with the iPad, so I do not believe they will be getting iPhone anytime soon. Sprint will bundle the iPhone with 4G Overdrive option and Sprint iPhone users will be able to experience mobile 4G speeds, via WiFi, that AT&T can not compete with. Sprint's 3G network is much more reliable and dependable than AT&T's, so I believe you will see iPhone users switch to Sprint in droves. Sprint's customer service is a lot better now and in recent surveys Sprint was just behind Verizon. iPhone users will be thrilled once it goes to Sprint as they will not be having dropped calls they are used to having and their price plans will be more affordable than AT&T's excessively expensive plans.

    Who cares about verzion. iphone for sprint

  • Roscoe

    I'm really tired of AT&T's crappy service, whining about 3G usage and not putting their money where it counts. I really hope Apple comes out with a 4G version for Verzion.
