iDownloadBlog reported that the Verizon iPhone 5 is GSM unlocked. “Even though I bought an iPhone 5 from Verizon under contract, I was able to cut down my AT&T Micro SIM, and use it in my Verizon iPhone 5 to pick up an AT&T signal. By doing so, I was able to hop onto AT&T’s HPSA+ network, or “4G” as they so ridiculously name it.” With that they confirmed that you can use a Verizon iPhone 5 on AT&T or T-Mobile, freely, even if you’re a brand new customer under contract. » Verizon iPhone 5 Confirmed To Be Unlocked

The Sydney Morning Herald reports that the Australian regulators are taking action against Apple for selling the iPad 3 as a “4G” device even though it does not work on any Australian 4G networks. “The issue stems from Apples use of “4G” in its marketing terms for the cellular-capable models of the new iPad, while 4G LTE compatibility is actually only offered in the United States and Canada due to differences in the frequency bands used for LTE in different countries.» Apple Targeted Over Claims Of False 4G LTE iPad Advertising In Australia

A Apple insider said the N90 “codename for iPhone HD” may not be ready for launch yet. If so, Apple has an alternative “safer” iPhone with the codename N91. It will have less functions than the N90 and will probably not include the front facing camera. Its just like the iPod Touch where Apple removed the camera just before Steve announced it on the Keynote.

On a side note, Apple initiated the iPhone 4G project at the end of 2008. According to our sources, Apple actually has another product codenamed N91 for the project, which offers less change from previous iPhones compared with the N90. It’s a parallel product to back up the N90 in case there are major delays due to significant modifications in casing, display resolution, digital camera support and so forth. » Apple Has Alternative iPhone Prototype On Hand
