CDMA, LTE still coming, HVGA is dead, long live WVGA?

GSM seem to be getting all of the love for Windows Phone. So where is the CDMA love? We all know that Andy Lees, president of the Windows Phone division, indicated that LTE is coming to Windows Phone, but is lacking LTE holding back new devices for our CDMA brethren? According to Andy Lees:

[the lack of CDMA is]no limitation of the OS, it’s a timing thing between the operator and the OEMS

Greg Sullivan, Windows Phone senior product manager, has also put other OEMs minds at ease silencing that Nokia would get Mango source for LTE support first by indicating:

I don’t think there’s any kind of head start [Nokia] gets, but I think Stephen [Elop} was more aggressive in terms of getting out there with the news

Finally, the 320×480 screen resolution that was once considered a requirement for lower chassis Windows Phone devices has met an untimely end. Noting that the price of WVGA panels have decreased drastically, WVGA seems to be the lower end requirement for Windows Phones. In lieu of that, I wouldn’t be too surprised seeing a new Chassis 1 specifications in March.

But that’s just me. What do you think?

  1. “[the lack of CDMA is]no limitation of the OS”Of course it isn’t!  Sprint and Verizon are already offering CDMA WP7 devices.  They just haven’t been enthusiastic supporters of WP7.
