Fueled by the speculation of Verizon introducing a CDMA based Apple iPhone in 2011, discussions about current CDMA handsets lacking simultaneous voice and data capability are becoming more common - much to AT&T's pleasure, we're sure.

There is hope for would-be Verizon iPhone customers, though. Talking to The Wall Street Journal, Brad Shewmake of the CDMA Development Group said a commercial solution for CDMA handsets that will allow simultaneous voice and data is planned for the first half of next year.

The solution Shewmake mentioned, called SVDO, is one that would need to be built into handsets, but requires no changes to be made to the existing network infrastructure.
