Apple has this habit of following up bad news with the good news. After the resignation of Steve Jobs, rumors are gaining ground that there would be an event on September 7th, where iPhone 5 will be launched, along with other products like a new lineup of Macs.

The upcoming iPhone 5 is rumored to be a single phone that supports multiple networks, namely CDMA (example – Verizon or Sprint in the US) as well as GSM (example AT&T and T-Mobile in the US).

Techcrunch has apparently heard from an anonymous source and seen data logs that indicate the iPhone 5 will be a dual mode one, which means that it will work on both the GSM and CDMA networks. This would be a breakthrough feature, which would mean that it would be easier to hop network to network and country to country. In case you’re wondering, CDMA and GSM are two completely different technologies, with the United States primarily being a CDMA country, while most of Asia and Europe is GSM.

Also rumored is that iPhone 5 will also make its debut on the Sprint network as well as T-Mobile network. If true, it would mean that the next iPhone will be launching simultaneously on AT&T, Verizon, Sprint, T-Mobile, which are the 4 major network providers in the US.
