Slideshow: LIVE: VERIZON IPHONE 4 TEARDOWN
BYTE's colleagues at UBM TechInsights are tearing down the Verizon iPhone 4, the CDMA version of the iPhone that Verizon began shipping to its own customers late last week. Beginning from the out of the box experience, the following photos show the process of taking this baby apart, step by step. This is a full tear down, so you can get a real look at the ICs and the design decisions engineers made. In this case, we were particularly interested in the CDMA aspect of the phone, comparing the design with the AT&T GSM iPhone version. As you check out this gallery -- and we're posting it live as we tear it down -- pay particular attention to the presence of the Qualcomm chip. You'll see why. Enjoy.
