    Analyst Says No LTE in iPhone 5; To Add Sprint, T-Mobile
    May. 13 2011 - Apple‘s iPhone 5 launch in September isn’t likely to include LTE functionality, Jefferies & Co. analyst Peter Misek asserts in a research note.

    “According to our industry checks, the device should be called iPhone 4S and include minor cosmetic changes, better cameras, A5 dual-core processor, and HSPA+ support,” he writes in a research note.

    But he also says that “industry checks indicate Apple will likely announce Sprint, T-Mobile, and China Mobile as new carriers.”

    As for LTE, he says the Qualcomm LTE chipset Apple would have used “is currently not achieving yields sufficient for inclusion in the iPhone 5.” He says Apple had hoped to have the LTE chipsets ready, but was planning a version without LTE called iPhone 4S.

    On the new carriers, he says Apple will announce distribution deals with Sprint and T-Mobile in time for the holidays. He also contends that China Mobile could be added in the next 12 months.

    Meanwhile, he says that demand trends indicate “significant ramps” for the iPad, but that demand for the iPhone is “flat” as “strength from the white iPhone 4 release and launches on new carriers
    such as SK Telekom are offset by slowing at AT&T and Vodafone.”

    Apple is down $3.77, or 1.1%, to $342.80.

    I think Apple may be "making it right"

    It's only a matter of time before the iPhone hits Sprint anyway.

    I view this as good strategy against Google. If true. Multiple carriers are one way Google got Android all over. I still like Android though.
    HP has officially ruined it's own platform and kicked webOS loyalists and early TouchPad adopters to the curb. You think after you drop it like a hot potato and mention it made no money and is costing you money, anyone else wants it??? Way to go HP!!

    And some people are fools to keep believing their hype. HP has shown they will throw webOS under the bus and people are still having faith in them??? News flash: if it's own company won't stand behind it, it's finished!
