Interesting article...but a fully global phone? That is really going to something I would like to see. Please do a follow-up on that topic.

Hi Allan , Thanks...that makes more sense now since I initially thought that Verizon is going to lock us with a data plan and won't be able to connect to the home wifi. Good info. -Astrud

The GPS is handled by the MDM6600 Mobile Data Modem.

Broadcom with the BCM4329. This is the same module that was used in the other iPhone 4 and the iPad as well.

Hello guys, I've provided Rick with an updated board shot that indicates where the WiFi chip is located. It is again provided by Broadcom and it is the BCM4329. Thanks, Allan

It's not so much that. Is there another PCB? I only saw one and there was no WiFi chip on it.

Which GPS module is iPhone 4 using for A-GPS? Does this phone support satellite based navigation? or does this only use cell towers for location triangulation?

Mr. Webb is indeed paranoid. The LEDs in phones are very different from the ones he posted links to, MUCH lower power, and not UV light emitting. Just another wingnut with too much time on his hands....
