Korean Carrier Allegedly Confirms CDMA iPhone Rumors

According to The Korea Herald, Choi Joo-sick, senior vice president of Korean carrier LG Uplus, confirmed in a conference call last that they’re “in talks with Apple” for  CDMA iPhone.

LG Uplus Corp., the smallest mobile- phone operator in Korea, said it is in talks with Apple Inc. to offer the CDMA iPhone in the domestic market. LG Uplus is negotiating about a change to the electronic circuits to make CDMA iPhones for the company, senior vice president Choi Joo-sick said on a conference call, available on the company’s website.

The company said Friday that its third-quarter earnings tumbled 94.9 percent from a year ago on increased marketing expenses.

Much has been said about the alleged CDMA iPhone / Verizon iPhone set to ship in early 2011 on multiple carriers worldwide. Korean rumors follow the speculations that Apple might be willing to implement CDMA technology as a way to reach more users and gain more market share in Asian countries.

BGR reported last month that the rumored Verizon iPhone has hit “testing stage” and it’s basically ready for massive production.
