More claims are coming from Verizon’s CFOÂ this time, and once again it pertains to the next generation iPhone being a ‘world phone’ capable of both GSM and CDMA antenna bands. During Verizon’s recent earnings report in April, CFO Fran Shammo hinted the next iPhone would be a ‘world phone’. Today, at the Global Technology Summit Shammo was busy talking next-iPhone details with Reuters. The existing Qualcomm chip within the Verizon iPhoneÂ already hasÂ dual modeÂ capabilities as revealed from an iFixit teardown.
When the next iPhone model launches Verizon will be able to offer it at the same time as AT&T. Verizon’s version will also work in as many countries as AT&T’s iPhone, which has global coverage, Shammo said
