Nice detailed article, this means Verizon users who never switch the carriers are always paying around 25$ more by buying QB GSM + QB WCDMA handsets, but yes going to be DB CDMA will surely reduce the size of the board and the costing as well as the article discusses.

I have a 4G epic in an area with 4G and my "next cube neighbor" has a iPhone 4. We compared download speeds using the the speedtest app on both phones. 3mb/s on epic versus 2.4mb/s on iphone. Not much of a difference if you ask me... Upload speeds had a similar comparison (300k versus 240K). The AT&T iPhone is a world phone. Is the Verizon?

I doubt Verizon is going to pass the savings on. Verizon will sell iPhone for what ATT sells iPhone for. They would be foolish to do otherwise. THe pump doesn't need to be primed for people to leave ATT.

I thought this was a news article in an engineering publication. But the headline says $25 then the body says $30 then it's revealed that the person making the statement hasn't seen or torn down the phone because, we then find out, the hardware isn't even released. This article is a waste of space speculation piece to advertise UBM TechInsights that has the opposite effect for me: I no longer trust their "data".
