    me too I took it with a grain of salt but it sounds likely that means that they wouldn't have to manufacture different devices for each carrier

    oh man!! That sounds exactly like it. Damm.... Is it possible that HP could be doing the same and that's where apple got the idea?

    Wimax is what Sprint uses, right? I hope this rumor is true.

    It would make sense as such a method would cut down on manufacturing costs. They'll just have to do a separate WIMax device for Sprint.
    Are you trying to hurt me?

    It would make more sense for the LTE and WiMax radios to be interchangeable. Wouldn't make sense to have them both unless vzw & sprint agrees to allow unlocked phones.

    I some how doubt this info, however I don't doubt it's potential. My friend who actually bought stock in Clearwire and myself have been speculating that they would have a duel LTE/WiMAX chip at some point. And if that does come true, then HP, Samsung, HTC, and yes, even Apple, would all be using that chip. And if some how they merged GSM/CDMA with it too -- which, btw, is the part I doubt -- everyone who makes phone for multiple companies would use this chip. But we shall see.

    Apple will apparently be switching to Qualcomm for their next-gen mobile stuff.

    Now let me actually re-state what I meant here, maybe I miss understood OP. I do not think they will make a radio with all four radios, however, I do think it is possible that they will make a CDMA/GSM and WiMAX/LTE duel radios. I think now -- reading over the endgadget.com article -- that this is what the OP meant.

    If they were to create a world phone, it would make sense to create a GSM/LTE/CDMA phone. I can't think of a reason why they'd add WiMax into that mix...

    This sounds like an "industry first" to me, anyone else?

    With 48 counties listed as deployed WiMAX networks -- and Sprint being the third largest in the USA -- and you can't think of any reason Apple would want to use a WiMAX chip?

    Plus, Apple is probably not going to make a iPhone 4G this year, according to the article listed here.

    Oh, and by the way, one of those countries is Canada, with a carrier called Bell, and that carrier happens to have a 4G network ... called WiMAX.
    I didn't mean they wouldn't use WiMax, I just don't see why they would mix WiMax and LTE this soon. I think GSM/CDMA/WiMax makes sense, or GSM/CDMA/LTE, but not all 4 mixed together. I hope that clarifies my post.

    Ah, yes it does! And just in case you didn't notice -- I took out that big about Bell. They stopped backing WiMAX, and will be going to LTE .

    Unfortunately it is hard to believe rumors because HP has been so good at keeping secrets. I hope what you heard was true and we get this verified.

    As soon as I read this I was thinking the same thing. I somehow don't believe this will be true, but I have thought that possibly Sprints announcement will be that it will be embracing LTE and rolling it out too. If it's possible for phones to easily support both it would make any phase out of wimax phase in of LTE fairly easy.

    If we here Sprint say on the 7th that they will begin rolling out LTE then this rumor would start to look more probable.
