"Apple Inc. plans to begin producing this year a new iPhone that could allow U.S. phone carriers other than AT&T Inc. to sell the iconic gadget, said people briefed by the company.

"The new iPhone would work on a type of wireless network called CDMA, these people said.

Gives them a reason to play up unconfirmed rumors.

"Apple rumor mill: expectations of a new smaller-than-a-MacBook portable from the mothership, or possibly even an Apple-branded tablet computer. The ModBook is still a compelling piece of hardware, but I would have a hard time ordering one at the moment."
