The rumor that just won't DIE!

The rumor about Apple making a separate phone for Verizon lives on. This time, it's the Wall Street Journal pushing the story, though, and the financial markets got so excited by the news that the price of Apple stock shot past its all-time high. According to the report, Apple is working with two manufacturers to build two nearly identical fourth-generation iPhones, both of which would begin shipping in late summer.

Apple has released a new model of the iPhone every June or July since 2007, and the fact that there's a new phone coming in pretty much a foregone conclusion. There is a widespread assumption that Apple's original exclusivity deal with AT&T would be ending this year, and so many observers have speculated about a second US carrier for the iPhone. Though Verizon's network uses CDMA rather than the iPhone's GSM protocol, it's much larger in terms of subscribers than third-place T-Mobile. Rumors about Apple working on a CDMA iPhone have been bouncing around since the middle of last year, with a story in the newspaper USA Today claiming that Apple and Verizon were reopening talks which had broken down years before over financial issues.

The Wall Street Journal reported in its online edition this evening that Apple has contracted with Taiwan-based Pegatron Technology, a subsidiary of ASUSTeK, to build the CDMA version of the fourth-generation iPhone. Citing unnamed "people briefed on the matter," the article written by Yukari Iwatani Kane, Ting-I Tsai and Niraj Sheth said that Hon Hai, whose Foxconn unit currently makes the iPhone (as well as the iPod and the Mac mini), would build the GSM model. An AT&T spokesperson was quoted as saying that "there has been lots of incorrect speculation on CDMA iPhones for a long time. We haven't seen one yet and only Apple knows when that might occur."

Apple stock reached an all-time high of $232.39 at the close of trading on the New York Stock Exchange at 4pm US Eastern Time. In after-hours trading, the price went up almost $4 before settling at $236.05 by 5pm.

Planned Tablet Hacks



The iPhone DevTeam has been passed confidential internal information relating to the next version of the tablet computer the ‘iPad’. An upcoming redesign of the iPad tablet computer will miniaturize the device so that it will be able to be carried on the user’s person (such as a pocket or small bag). Also a radical move to add a minimum of a 13 kbits/s speech codec to the miniaturized tablet variant is planned.
The inclusion of the voice codec will allow the user to directly utilize the GSM nomadic network, allowing person to person communications directly using your mini-iPad from anywhere dramatically speeding up the usual typed email or instant messaging capabilities that the iPad offers today.
It is the plan of the iPhone DevTeam to target this device as soon as it is released.
