    I could have sworn I read CDMA when mac rumors listed the antennas. I might have dotten it mixed up with the faster 3G one though. Someone please just tell me I'm crazy.

    Most likely you saw the W-CDMA antenna. The 3G technology associated with GSM telephones is W-CDMA, a variant of CDMA (it's not "compatible" with either the telephony or data components of "CDMA" networks like the ones Verizon and Sprint use). W-CDMA has been in use on the iPhone since the iPhone 3G.
