World iPad with multi-mode GSM/CDMA modem tipped for 2011

Having heard earlier this morning that Apple suppliers are allegedly preparing for mass-production of iPad 2 PCBs in February 2011, now there's speculation on what components might be fixed to them. AllThingsD quotes Wedge Partners analyst Brian Blair, who reckons Apple has picked Qualcomm's multi-mode GSM/CDMA modem for a so-called "World iPad" that could use AT&T and Verizon data networks.

Verizon “excited” about Windows Phone 7; will offer devices as soon as Microsoft has them

Verizon “excited” about Windows Phone 7; will offer devices as soon as Microsoft has them

Verizon didn't seem particularly bothered, back in October, to be left out of the Windows Phone 7 launch fun; CEO Lowell McAdam said Microsoft was no longer a major player in the smartphone OS market, and that the company was "not at the forefront of our mind." Now, while analysts can't agree on how many Windows Phone 7 devices were actually sold in the US, it seems the halo effect of the new platform has rubbed off on Verizon; the carrier is now apparently "excited" to offer the devices as soon as they can get them.

Sprint CEO thanks iPad for hotspot sales; coy on Apple relationship

Sprint CEO thanks iPad for hotspot sales; coy on Apple relationship

Neither Sprint 3G or 4G is inside the iPad, and - unlike AT&T and Verizon - the carrier doesn't even sell the Apple tablet in its stores, but that doesn't stop CEO Dan Hesse from being mighty thankful to the slate all the same.  According to Hesse, brisk sales of the carrier's 3G/4G Overdrive mobile hotspot are for the large part down to WiFi-only iPad users wanting to get online via Sprint's CDMA/WiMAX network.  However, he declined to talk to GigaOm about the iPhone and potential relationships with Apple.

iPhone for Verizon Landing in March 2011, Analyst Predicts

iPhone for Verizon Landing in March 2011, Analyst Predicts

Even if Target and Sam's Club are getting ready to launch the iPhone in their own stores across the nation, talk about the iPhone launching on Verizon continues. While initial rumors paint the launch of the iDevice for Big Red's network anywhere in the first half of 2011, it looks like one analyst believes that it's "on track" for a March, 2011 release date. But, as we've heard in the past, it looks like the CDMA iPhone won't just be for Verizon, but for other international markets as well.

CDMA iPhone rumors turn to India

CDMA iPhone rumors turn to India

If you thought Windows Phone 7 would give you some respite from the perpetual CDMA iPhone 4 rumors, think again.  Rather than Verizon this time, however, it's a pair of Indian carriers tipped to be getting the radio-tweaked iOS smartphone; the WSJ claims to have heard from sources that "Tata [Teleservices Ltd.] has been in talks with them [Apple] for four to five months now" and that "this has been going on as India is a big market for CDMA. It [any launch] should benefit both parties."

iPhone 5 and iPad 2 to switch to Qualcomm baseband tips report

iPhone 5 and iPad 2 to switch to Qualcomm baseband tips report

Intel might not have long as supplier of the 3G chipsets for the iPhone and iPad, with reports in China surfacing that claim Apple is planning to switch its baseband allegiance to Qualcomm for the fifth-generation iPhone and second-gen iPad.  The move, AppleInsider suggests, does not necessarily confirm the ongoing rumors of a CDMA iPhone - despite the apparent public demand for a Verizon iPhone option - but given Qualcomm's dual-mode wireless chips would at least make that a greater possibility.
