Expect Next iPhone on Verizon & AT&T, Get Global Coverage
For those people who are planning to buy the next Apple iPhone can enquire from Verizon and AT&T site.
Verizon CFO Fran Shammo says the next generation iPhone will launch simultaneously on Verizon and AT&T and will offer global coverage, according to Reuters.
While Verizon has sold fewer iPhones than some analysts expected, Shammo said he was happy with sales of the “six-month-old phone” that only works in some countries.
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.
If the next generation iPhone doesn’t support LTE, Verizon will have plenty of alternative devices for those who want a faster connection, as noted by Shammo.
“I think it’s a bigger issue for Apple than it is for us,” he said. “Depending on where Apple plays, that’s where we’ll sell.”
Many people are expecting that Apple will utilize a CDMA-GSM Qualcomm chip in the next iPhone; however, recent reports indicate that a satisfactory LTE chip will not be ready in time for this year.
