Did Apple leave the 3rd antenna out on purpose.

Now that is has been determined that Verizon and sprint will not be able to support simultanous voice and data on the iPhone 5 (even in LTE) because Apple did NOT add the 3rd antenna (like Samsung and others did to work on CDMA).
The reason Apple said they did this was for manufacturing reasons.

Do you feel Apple did this for manufacturing reasons? Or to spite Verizon for bad mouthing the iPhone for so long (if you ever called or stopped into a Verizon store they always steer you away from the iPhone)?
