Verizon Wireless CEO Dan Mead continued to leave
everyone guessing about the connectivity of the Apple iPhone 5 when he told the Wall Street Journal today that Apple will eventually produce
mobile products enabled to run on Big Red's LTE 4G
network. Currently, the Apple iPhone 4 and the
iPad connect to Verizon's 3G pipelines using the
carrier's EV-DO Rev. A connectivity. Mead told the financial newspaper that, "You'll see
more coming from Apple on LTE. They understand
the value proposition of LTE and I feel very
confident that they are going to be a part of it."
While your thoughts about Apple and LTE might
jump immediately to the iPhone 5, no particular product was mentioned by Mead and the Verizon
executive did not bring up any timeframe when all of this might happen. There is speculation about whether or not the next version of the Apple iPhone will be LTE enabled. Apple has said that they had left LTE out of the
Verizon version of the iPhone 4 because to do
otherwise would have required a re-design of the
product that Apple did not want to get involved
with at the time. As for speculation that iPhone 4 sales were
sluggish at Verizon, CEO Mead refuted that by
saying that the carrier sold more units of the Apple
iPhone 4 during the handset's launch than any
other device in the carrier's history. Mead also said
that Verizon will report precise iPhone sales during the release of its next quarterly earnings report.
