CDMA-capable iPhone in late testing phase?

Apple is in the late testing phases of a CDMA-capable iPhone that could potentially be released by Verizon, according to a new report. John Gruber of Daring Fireball reports that the phone, codenamed N92, is in the “engineering verification test” phase, two steps away from production and one step below “device verification test” status, which was the current phase of the iPhone 4 unit that was lost by an Apple employee. Gruber notes that the phone doesn’t necessarily have to be Verizon-bound, and could potentially launch on Sprint or China Telecom, amongst other carriers throughout Asia and South America.

EVT is an early testing phase, not late. The five hardware engineering stages are proto build, EVT, DVT, PVT/ramp, and steady state production.

Also, the ‘D’ in DVT stands for Design, not Device.

Gruber got it wrong and the rest of the tech bloggers don’t seem willing to do any research to verify his report.

If Verizon and Apple need testers i volunteer. I can do reception testing because every Verizon phone I’ve had gets poor reception when I am at home. Great elsewhere, bad at home. My wife and I really do say “Can you hear me now?” A lot.

Still I’m willing to make the sacrifice.
