    Default Stratus = GSM and Striker = LTE?

    Always puzzled by the two different codenames. Is one codename for the GSM model and the other for the LTE model?

    LTE is not GSM nor is it CDMA but it probably is closer related to GSM. 3 of the us carriers are going to LTE for their 4G.

    LTE is defined in the 3GPP specifications, which is the same body that sets specifications for GSM and WCDMA networks. That being said, it has been designed to support seamless upgrades from non 3GPP systems like CDMA. In effect Verizon is the USA is taking the 3GPP path for the future.

    The competing 3GPP2 standard to LTE is UMB, which lacks support right now.

    GSM and CDMA will always be misnomers that represent a "brand" even if its doesn't accurately describe the present platform.

    LTE will inevitably fall under the GSM umbrella as HSPA has.

    I would tend to think the naming is one for GSM and the other for CDMA.

    The stricker 9100 is only 3G(no lte). For the cdma version I think it will be a 9150, not a 9130. Look at the storm2 and Tour2(or bold who care?). I know that the. 8530 have wifi but it's just a feeling...

    Or, if what leaked photos have shown: Stratus = SureType & Striker = T9.

    no blackberries being released now or soon will be LTE compatible. there isn't even a network for it yet in the US.
    Previously: Blackberry Bold 9700 - 6.0.0.344
    Currently: Motorola Atrix - Android 2.2
