Rumors of a CDMA-based iPhone just won’t go away, and the latest claims that Apple has placed orders for such a device with a fall delivery schedule. The rumored CDMA iPhone is allegedly being built by Pegatron’s Shanghai production facilities, according to DigiTimes.
This latest report will no doubt help fuel rumors that Verizon will soon offer the iPhone, ending AT&T’s exclusive deal in the United States. The iPhone is currently available only with GSM technology, which isn’t compatible with Verizon’s CDMA-based network.
The report from DigiTimes also claimed that Pegatron is trying to win MacBook and iPad production orders from Apple.
Considering DigiTime’s spotty record with Apple-related rumors, however, both reports should be taken with a grain of salt.
