Will the Verizon iPhone be an LTE Phone?

Much has been said and written about when and how an iPhone will appear on the Verizon network. It may be remembered that way back in ancient history Steve Jobs said that Apple would never do a CDMA iPhone. While this was sometimes ascribed to the fact that Apple had an exclusive contract with AT&T, there may have been technical reasons why Apple felt that this combination might not be ‘insanely great’. It could be speculated that there might be battery life, temperature, or other power consumption issues on CDMA that would impact the user experience, a killer for the Apple folks.

Now Verizon has announced that their next generation LTE network is about to launch on December 5 in 38 metropolitan areas, it is attractive to speculate that sometime next year this network would provide the platform that Apple would find attractive enough to make the combination something new and powerful. The CEO of Verizon, Ivan Seidenberg, has said “If the iPhone comes to us, it’s because Apple thinks it’s time. Our interests are beginning to come together more but they have to take steps to align their technology with ours.”

The pieces are coming together. Seems to make sense to us.
