, folks at iFixit and iFixyouri have got their hands on one of them and done what every geek would love to do i.e. to crack open
to see what’s inside.
It’s not clear why Apple did not launch a single model supporting both GSM and CDMA networks. iFixit’s CEO Kyle Wiens speculates:
It may be that it was easier to design antennas for a CDMA-only phone—this phone supports two cellular frequency bands, while Apple supports five bands in the GSM version. But this is a sign that Apple may be considering unifying the CDMA and GSM iPhones in the future.
