Nokia in talks with Verizon over CDMA possibility; is “considering everything”

Nokia has been in talks with Verizon Wireless in the US, CEO Stephen Elop has confirmed to us, and while the Finnish company has no plans to announce today, the possibility of CDMA devices is still on the table. Speaking in an interview with SlashGear at MWC 2011 today, Elop denied the long-standing belief that Nokia's relationships with the North American carriers were poor.

Verizon iPhone 4 teardown: World Phone CDMA/GSM radio inside

Verizon iPhone 4 teardown: World Phone CDMA/GSM radio inside

iFixit has been at it again, whipping out the adjustable spanner set (well, a selection of Torx screwdrivers actually) and taking on Verizon's iPhone 4. We've already given the CDMA smartphone a good going over in our full Verizon iPhone 4 review, but now we get to see the changes inside the iOS handset too. The biggest point of interest is the Qualcomm MDM6600 radio chipset, which actually could've been used to make the Verizon iPhone 4 into a so-called world phone.

Verizon’s iPhone 4: I Was Wrong. Here’s Why.

Verizon’s iPhone 4: I Was Wrong. Here’s Why.

"The surest way for an analyst to generate attention is by making an Apple prediction. Apple has a cult following, and its product development and launch strategy is famously secretive, so the fact that your source is the lunch counter guy across the block from the Hon Hai factory in Taiwan won’t be discovered (or may even be considered authoritative!)"

Those were the opening lines in my first column for SlashGear back in October of 2009. I went on to note that while I don't usually make specific product predictions, I would go out on a limb and provide a guess on when we’d see an iPhone on Verizon Wireless: in 2014, when Verizon Wireless completed its LTE rollout.

iTunes 10.1.2 released, supports CDMA iPhone 4

Apple has released iTunes 10.1.2 for the Mac and PC, adding CDMA support in the latest update.  This is necessary for those who plan on buying Verizon’s iPhone 4 and have it sync properly with iTunes. The release didn’t specifically mention Verizon and only referred to an “iPhone 4 (CDMA model)” which has people speculating whether other CDMA carriers for the iPhone 4 may be in the near future.

Verizon HTC Thunderbolt to do simultaneous voice & 3G data?

Verizon HTC Thunderbolt to do simultaneous voice & 3G data?

The Verizon iPhone 4's inability to do simultaneous voice and 3G data is still one of the key differentiators between it and AT&T's GSM version, but it seems not all Verizon smartphones are created equal. According to a purported leak from inside the carrier and passed to Phandroid, the upcoming HTC Thunderbolt will actually support simultaneous voice and 3G data; however, it's not something we should expect to hear Verizon making much noise about.

Verizon iPhone 4 $50 more off-contract than AT&T version

Verizon iPhone 4 $50 more off-contract than AT&T version

Prior to the Verizon iPhone 4 getting its official launch, at least one analyst speculated that the CDMA smartphone would be more expensive than its AT&T sibling. Unsurprisingly that's turned out not to be the case, at least given how most people will buy the iOS smartphone - with an agreement, it'll be the same $199.99 for the 16GB and $299.99 for the 32GB as the GSM version - however you will have to spend a little more for an off-contract handset.

Take a big serious look at this fabulous Jawbone ERA in a high-res review - it rocks really hard.

Behold a whole new world via an extrapolation of the ideas of soon to be former CEO of Google Eric Schmidt by yours truly in a featured post called The Mobile Revolution is Upon Us. Finally discover the kind side of PR as Motorola issues an apology for one of their own speaking rudely to a developer.
