Verizon Wireless Fran Shammo today indicated for a second time that the next version of the Apple iPhone it sells will be a world phone, capable of using Verizon's CDMA network in the U.S., and the GSM-based networks in other countries. The CDMA iPhone 4 sold by Verizon currently only works in the U.S. and a select few countries, unlike the AT&T version, which works the world over. Shammo reiterated that when the next iPhone is launched by Apple, Verizon will be able to sell it at the same time AT&T can. On the subject of an LTE-equipped iPhone, Shammo deferred to Apple. "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." Verizon Wireless's LTE network recently expanded to 55 markets, but still has a long way to go before completion. Apple has previously said that adding LTE to the iPhone would force it to make design concessions it's not prepared to accept.

I will laugh if they push out the iphone 5 this summer and it doesn't have 4g.
