I suppose I ought to be careful about spreading rumors, but this is such a great idea that if indeed Apple isn't planning to do this, it should. The rumor is that next year not only will Verizon be offering an iPhone but that the phone will be able to work on both CDMA and GSM networks. Plus, it would have all the necessary 3G bands, such that you could take the phone virtually anyplace in the world and have both cellular and high-speed data capability. You can read more on CNet. The rumor also is saying that this new phone will have a 2.8-inch screen, compared to the current 3.6-inch screen.
