T-Mobile Is Finally Getting the iPhone (Most Likely)
T-Mobile customers, your long nightmare may be coming to a close. Deutsche Telekom has just announced that T-Mobile USA has “entered into an agreement with Apple to bring products to market together in 2013.”
So, T-Mobile is finally getting the iPhone (and the iPad)?
Well, it’s not official yet, as the announcement didn’t mention specifics. In fact, the announcement was sort of hidden inside a large release concerning Deutsche Telekom’s future financial plans.
If the T-Mobile/Apple deal does in fact include the iPhone (which it has to, right?) it will mean the the last major U.S. carrier finally has the device.
Rumors about the iPhone coming to T-Mobile have been floating around for years, but last week we heard another one from a Merrill Lynch analyst that said that the big iPhone announcement would be made on December 6th. Looks like he was right on.
This is a developing story and we will update with details as we learn them,[h/t Engadget]
