With the recent news that a new Android slider is heading to Verizon, this made me believe that a dual-mode CDMA / GSM iPhone is possible. Possible. This could certainly solve a lot of issues and bring the iPhone to Verizon and all other carriers with just one handset and not two.
I only thought about this after seeing some leaked images of a new HTC/Verizon world phone on AndroidGuys. You can see for the photos that the screen is almost as bug as the HTC EVO 4G, but this slider has a QWERTY keyboard like the Samsung Epic 4G.
So what do we know so far? Well there is that 4-inch screen, possible 1.2 Ghz processor and Android 2.2 Froyo, but that’s about it. We have to point out that by the time this comes to market, all this could change.
We always love to talk about a Verizon iPhone, but the chances of this happening are looking less likely as each year passes. Although we do have a theory, Apple could have approached Verizon to offer their users the iPhone 5. The reason for this is because it has been rumored that the fifth-generation iPhone will support 4G, and Verizon will be pushing this out before AT&T.
Do you believe that there will be a CDMA / GSM iPhone in 2011?
