The iPhone life cycle usually starts every summer. New iPhone speculation seems to have started early as the Wall Street Journal is reporting two new iPhones are coming this summer, with one of them being a CDMA model slated for Verizon.
According to “people briefed on the matter”, two iPhones will be launched. The fourth generation iPhone will include GSM and CDMA models. Why CDMA? That would mean Verizon could finally land the iPhone in the USA. These two models are apparently being manufactured by two different companies.

The people briefed on the matter said one of the new iPhones is being manufactured by Taiwanese contract manufacturer Hon Hai Precision Industry Co., which produced Apple’s previous iPhones. The model that has CDMA capability, used by Verizon Wireless, is being manufactured by Pegatron Technology Corp., the contract manufacturing subsidiary of Taiwan’s ASUSTeK Computer Inc., said these people.
The Wall Street Journal has been known to have close ties to Apple when it comes to getting ‘tidbits’ of information. Take this with a grain of salt I’d say.
We know that the fourth generation iPhone is imminent. This report by the WSJ only introduces that a CDMA version could be coming. As for specs, we won’t find them out until Steve Jobs pulls the phone out of his pocket this summer. I’d like to see the iPad’s A4 chip, higher resolution screen, better battery life, and a revamped iPhone OS 4.0. What about you?
