iPhone 5 rumors that it will be a dual mode 'Global Phone' with both GSM and CDMA network support have been confirmed. Robin Wauters at TechCrunch broke out the news that he was approached by an iOS developer with solid proof that iPhone 5 will support both GSM and CDMA networks. The App usage logs shared by the developer who requested to be anonymous, clearly show that the new iphone used by a selected number of people is dual-mode phone - supporting both CDMA and GSM networks. The logs show that the device used by these select few people is iPhone 5, running iOS 5 and supports two distinct sets of mobile network codes (MNC) / mobile country codes (MCC).

iPhone 5 To Support GSM & CDMA Networks!

Steve Jobs clearly knows that a "Global Phone" would be the future of the smartphones. Apple works with both CDMA and GSM network providers in USA and making the iPhone 5 compatible with both networks makes it easier for the business users to have a single device that works in any country they visit. However, this might be a a disappointing news for the LTE fans. The evidences so far show that iPhone 5 won't have LTE support.

We believe the Dual Mode iPhone 5 would be great from the consumer perspective. The phone is expected to be released sometime in the next 2-3 months, along with the release of iOS 5 - which offers tons of great new features and improvements over the earlier version of iOS. We look forward to hearing your opinion on dual mode iPhone 5. Superlike? Posted in: #Coffee Room
