More Smartphones that Work for Business

New smartphones that are suitable for business use.

Seth Weintraub at Mac 9 to 5 spotted not one but two references to new iPhones in the new firmware for AppleTV. It's speculated that the references to iPhone 3.2 and iPhone 3.3 are software for Sprint, T-Mobile and Verizon iPhone 4, says According to Product Reviews Net, It's also possible that it could reference an updated iPhone that addresses the device's previous antennae issues.


Petragon, a Chinese company, will reportedly produce 3 million CDMA iPhones by the end of next year for Apple. Both Sprint and Verizon use CDMA networks, notes the LA News Monitor. Verizon CEO Ivan Seidenberg said his company was hopeful of offering an iPhone but essentially squashed his company from offering the smartphone on its network in the near future. That leaves Sprint and T-Mobile for the time being. While neither company offers the subscriber base of Verizon, Sprint's 4G Wimax network is a nice bargaining chip and T-Mobile is readying the G2 for its HSPA+ network.

T-mobile is NOT CDMA. Yet another reason that bloggers like you will never be taken seriously.......

Alright, yo. T-Mobile isn't CDMA, nor is it going to be. Verizon is going GSM in January, so that leaves Sprint. Apple would NEVER put an iPhone on Sprint. Sprint is the worst network in the US, dropped calls, fewest customers, etc. It's probably for international use. Or even a world phone.

Sprint is the worst? lol dumbass.. try reading, you gain knowledge that way.

According to a Sept 11, 2010 article, Sprint is the second best carrier (verizon being first)
