Verizon to offer CDMA iPad 3G

Hot off the heels of the Verizon iPhone announcement comes a report that Verizon Wireless will soon be offering Apple's iPad with an embedded CDMA chip to better compete with AT&T. From Bloomberg:

Verizon will get an embedded chip in the iPad for use on its network, Francis Shammo, chief financial officer of Verizon Communications Inc., the parent of the wireless unit, said today in an interview in New York. IPad users currently need an extra device to connect to Verizon’s network.

Verizon iPhone running iOS 4.2.5

Verizon iPhone running iOS 4.2.5

We were fairly certain the Verizon iPhone 4 would require a new version of iOS, sporting a new CDMA radio stack, and it seems it will -- iOS 4.2.5 (8E128).

Current GSM iPhones are on iOS 4.2.1 but it's currently unknown if they'll also get a bump to iOS 4.2.5 when the Verizon iPhone ships on February 10.

In addition to the CDMA radio, iOS 4.2.5 on Verizon will support the new mobile hot spot feature announced today, and while there's no word on whether or not that will remain exclusive to Verizon, no other carrier has announced it yet either.

CDMA Verizon iPhone hits FCC

Coming as no surprise, the CDMA Verizon iPhone 4 has just hit the FCC. (Come on, you know Apple wasn't going to let the government announce it?)

Model A1349 (as opposed to the GSM version's A1332) has the expected test results for CDMA / EV-DO Rev. A on the 850 and 1900MHz bands along with Bluetooth and WiFi without a whiff of GSM support for global roaming

AT&T has been prepping iPhone plan as Verizon now has an iPhone of their own

AT&T has been prepping a new advertisement plan to do what they can to keep people from switching to the Verizon iPhone. AT&T plans to focus its ads on the fact they say their network has faster 3G speeds and overall performs better than Verizon's network (not sure who they are fooling with that!).

More so than just advertising, AT&T has been taking other steps in preparation for this day of the lose of exclusivity. They have been investing in improvements to their highly criticized network as well as been promoting lower prices for older iPhone models and introducing Android and Windows Phone 7 devices.

TiPb Asks: Did Verizon do enough?

Do you think that the Verizon iPhone announcement do enough to capture the hearts and minds of current AT&T customers? I'm not so sure myself. We got Mobile Hot Spot but I was hoping that we would get something more to sweeten the deal. White iPhone, buy out program, hold the iPhone 4 any way I want? Let us know what you think!

Apple: Verizon contract no exclusive (so Sprint is possible?)

Apple: Verizon contract no exclusive (so Sprint is possible?)

During the Verizon iPhone announcement today Apple COO Tim Cook revealed that their deal was multi-year but NOT exclusive. So that means there's no contractual reason we couldn't see a Sprint iPhone (or even T-Mobile?) but is there the will to get it done?

Do you want an iPhone on Sprint?

Verizon: We have the capacity to handle the iPhone

Verizon: We have the capacity to handle the iPhone

As part of the Verizon iPhone 4 announcement today, Dan Dee stressed that Verizon had been building out their network and scaling their infrastructure from retail to supply to... hopefully reception in order to handle the iPhone.

That should be good news for anyone in the US used to dropping iPhone calls. Then again, talk is cheap and the iPhone hits the network like rhino, so we'll have to see what happens when tens of millions of 3G devices are hammering your tower all at once.

Any guesses? Will Verizon hold up?
