Job posting signifies Apple taking steps to meet Verizon's technology

Brian Caulfield, author of the Shiny Objects blog for Forbes, has picked up on an interesting Apple job posting that calls for experience with a wide range of wireless technology, including Verizon's CDMA.

CDMA knowledge is certainly required if the iPhone is to ever actually come to Verizon. And while the job posting calls for a candidate familiar with GSM, GPRS, EDGE, WCDMA, HSDPA, HSUPA, CDMA, etc., Caulfield points out that all of those protocols are currently used by Apple's phones, with the exception of CDMA.

While the Verizon iPhone is perhaps one of the best-known, unofficially "done deals", it's still, well, unofficial. Even Verizon CEO Ivan Seidenberg didn't sound like he knew when his company would carry the iPhone, admitting, "If the iPhone comes to us, it's because Apple thinks it's time. Our interests are beginning to come together more but they have to take steps to align their technology with ours."

At the very least, this job posting -- in addition to nine others Caulfield cites that require knowledge of CDMA -- signifies that Apple has begun to take those steps.

Meanwhile, on the Google front: Gmail for Android received a major update yesterday that offers enhanced priority inbox support, inline responses, and improved compose workflow. The priority inbox feature mimics that of Gmail's new(ish) feature on desktops, which separates important messages from the rest by a user-rating system and an automated algorithm. The improved compose workflow allows users to select reply, reply to all, and forward, all while on the compose screen. It also allows users to set which outgoing account to use, if there are multiple Gmail accounts. 

The Gmail update, version 2.3.2, is available for free from the Android Market.
