iPhone 5 Dual-Mode CDMA GSM Capability confirmed
 
 

There have been rumors that Apple would make one iPhone 5 model that would work on GSM and CDMA based networks. Right now there are two iPhone 4 models. One supporting GSM (AT&T) and the other CDMA (Verizon). Most countries around the world are GSM based. A Verizon iPhone 4 is impossible to use in several countries. An iPhone 5 that can do both standards will solve that issue. An iPhone 5 world phone is also reducing the cost for Apple. They just need to deal with one iPhone 5 model. 

TechCrunch reports that they received logs from an iOS app developer that showed several hits by a new iPhone marked as dual-mode. This evidence means that Apple started to the test the iPhone 5 on some of the apps in the iTunes App Store.

As August ends we are now entering the hot phase of the iPhone 5 rumors. We expect Apple to announce the iPhone 5 and the low-cost iPhone 4 somewhen in September. The iPhone 5 is seen to go on sale in October.

More iPhone 5 Rumors. One of these photos could be the iPhone 5.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
