Verizon iPhone to be LTE Device, Release Right After Christmas?




Verizon and Apple will reportedly announce a LTE iPhone 4 right after Christmas, according to a MacDailyNews source.

The site posts the following points obtained from their source:

• Verizon held management training for iPhone sales last week
• Verizon had functioning iPhones (LTE-capable) in management hands for the training sessions
• Formal announcement coming right "after christmas", was
• The formal announcement of the iPhones Verizon debut is coming right after Christmas; "Apparently ATT's final demand so as to maximize ATT's Christmas iPhone sales"
• The Verizon iPhone will be immediately available upon formal announcement
• Device has been "100% cooked for quite a while" and already shipping in bulk to Verizon warehouses
• The Verizon iPhone is not being shipped to any 3rd-party retailers in an effort to control leaks
• Verizon agreed to take 100% responsibility for security, so all the devices will be in their hands until the official announcement date, and they will then distribute through channels in massive manner (hence early stockpiling)
• The new iPhone is an LTE device and that fact - the only "LTE iPhone," exclusive to Verizon - will be the main marketing theme; i.e. "For the new '4G' (cough) verizon network" that Verizon has already started promoting
• As rollout of LTE not actually widespread, Verizon iPhone will have multi-band chip backward compatibility with regular CDMA
• iPhone 5 was planned to debut in summer as LTE-only, for all contracted carriers, but the clock is ticking and nobody thinks either Verizon or AT&T can get to critical mass to offer an LTE-only version
• Steve Jobs is said to be upset that carriers cannot seem to get their LTE act together more quickly
• Apple is "helping" U.S. carriers (money?) to build out LTE more quickly

Verizon launched its 4G LTE Network in 38 major metropolitan areas on December 5th. The company expects 4G LTE average data rates in real-world, loaded network environments to be 5 to 12 megabits per second (Mbps) on the downlink and 2 to 5 Mbps on the uplink.

Yet again we have the rumor that just wont die! I doubt AT&T would just give-up exclusivity just like that! I'm on apples side of this battle but think about it, the iPhone revived a dying company who had to change it's name back and Goethe just to keep and or attract new customers, Cingular, then AT&T, then Cingular again, and now AT&T...
AT&T is now worth more than Verizon, all thanks to the iPhone, which they should be keeping exclusively until 2012, and only in 2013 will AT&T's control in this USA iPhone be broken.. If I was the CEO of AT&T I would want a pretty penny for the break in the exclusivity, or even not allow it if possible.

All I know 100% is that if this is true will are going to start a countdown, how long it will take for the iPhone to wipeout android and blackberry... Don't forget the only reason that android is so successful is that they have a enormous amount of phones running the OS if they would have stayed with the nexus one until the nexus 2 would have been released then I'm 100% sure that even sybian would have a greater saturation than android. Once the iPhone is on multiple carriers it will dominate the market!

Backgrounder Gets Updated for iOS 4.2.1




Backgrounder by Lance Fetters (ashikase) has been updated to support iOS 4.2.1

Backgrounder allows for total control of backgrounding on an iPhone/iOS-based device. With Backgrounder, *you* decide when an app should keep running, and when it should quit.

Backgrounder provides true backgrounding; minimized apps can be made to continue to run as if they were still the foreground app.

What's New In This Version:
● Updated for iOS 4.2.1.
● Changed method used for preventing installation on unsupported iOS versions.
● Changed version numbering due to move from Google Code (svn) to GitHub (git).

You can download Backgrounder from the BigBoss Cydia Repository.
