Rumor: Apple Tablet may run on both AT&T and Verizon network

Fri, Jan 22, 2010


We’re not exactly sure when FoxNews became a source for Apple rumors, but hey, we’re not complaining. Late Thursday evening, FoxNews reported that Apple is planning to release 2 distinct versions of its upcoming Tablet, with one running on AT&T’s network and the other on Verizon’s.

The AT&T part isn’t surprising, given early reports that the tablet would rely on HSDPA, a feature used by AT&T that, according to company spokesman Mark Siegal, “effectively doubles the speed of our 3G network.”

According to a source at Verizon, Apple has been in talks with ‘the big red map’ to offer the tablet on its robust CDMA network. Additionally Verizon is in talks with Apple to bring the iPhone to its network by late spring or early summer, but specifics haven’t yet been finalized.
