Lastly we have the iPhone 4 for Verizon Wireless. It seems and has features just like the normal (GSM) iPhone 4 – retina display, camera and FaceTime for instance. However, it has subtle changes: a personal hotspot feature, a slight change in antenna design.
The antenna now has four breaks in the metal band instead of three which was addressed at the press conference as being optimized for CDMA. It may probably solve the “death grip” problem that plagued the original iPhone 4. But, it isn’t a world phone: it’s a 3G, CDMA iPhone with no LTE and no GSM. It works on Verizon’s 850 and 1900 MHz bands.
The personal Hotspot controls can be accessed through the Settings menu. And, a user can toggle the hotspot on/off, enter a WiFi password, and then figure out how to connect via WiFi or Bluetooth. Overall, we may say that it’s an iPhone-4 experience on the Verizon’s 3G network. It’s set for launch on 10 Feb tentatively.
