If there's a CDMA release I will be on that like a vegan on tofu.

I don't think so, CDMA is dead. I think the next iphone will be LTE and can work on Verizon once they rollout their 4G. I bet Sprint will also drop WiMax later and switch to LTE so that they won't be left out.

I think we'll see a CDMA iPhone before Verizon rolls out LTE. There are a lot of customers on Verizon that will not be upgrading phones immediately and there will be plenty of customers interested in a CDMA iPhone. In addition, LTE is backwards compatible to work with current CDMA protocol.

Even when verizon get's an LTE chip in their devices, they will still be CDMA, so you will get data with no voice?

LTE is supposed to do both voice and data. The CDMA will only be used as a fallback in case you can't get LTE. Eventually, as LTE spreads, you won't need CDMA or GSM.

Re: Anyone got iphone 4 pre-ordered today?

CDMA is going to be around for another few years, plenty of money to be made in that market right now.

Re: Anyone got iphone 4 pre-ordered today?

I have not ordered yet. But I am waiting for the reduction in the price. So, I have to wait for I think 1 or 1.5 years. But, I will do it as I have decided to purchase the latest technology for me as I am very much fascinated by the retina display technology and the touch screen gadgets fascinates me from the beginning.
