Next Verizon iPhone will be Global

Verizon CFO, Fran Shammo, has confirmed that the next iPhone will be a “global device”, capable of connecting to both CDMA networks and GSM networks abroad. There were rumors that the existing Big Red iPhone would be capable of such a feat, but for reasons unknown, Verizon decided to hold off for a generation.

iPhone 5 is expected to ship in September and will likely retain the current design. Apple has promised to release a white iPhone this Spring, so the iPhone 5 should be available in every color.

The fluctuation, I believe, will come when a new device from Apple is launched, whenever that may be, and that we will be, on the first time, on equal footing with our competitors on a new phone hitting the market, which will also be a global device.
