Remember those days when the iPhone 4 was still a rumor to be coming on Verizon? If you do, then you’d probably heard about the hearsays that the smartphone will come to Big Red’s 4G LTE network.
Well, that’s the sad case. It didn’t happen. But guess what? Verizon Wireless has recently told the Wall Street Journal that it will “soon” be releasing some Apple LTE phones. The word came from Dan Mead (who is none other than Verizon’s CEO) in an interview discussing the phone’s successful launch in the Verizon wireless network.
However, the Verizon CEO could still not give any clear details as to when these devices will be exactly released or how much it will cost. All that is sure for now is that Apple is surely working on its LTE smartphone versions.
On the other hand, Apple’s Tim Cook has said that an LTE version of the iPhone could require a great deal of consideration. Take for example, the backward capability and additional compatibility reasons. In any case, Apple has been continuously finding a way to solve the equation. Not to mention its willingness to offer its device to other wireless networks.
And who knows? Maybe by the end of this year or next year, Apple would finally announce the release of its iPhone 4 and iPhone 5 LTE versions.
