This one is about as cut and dry as they come: there's still no T-Mobile
iPhone around the corner. Over the weekend, AT&T announced their
intentions to acquire T-Mobile USA for $39 billion, and immediately,
some began to wonder about the obvious: would this mean that the iPhone
would have yet another new home? Not so fast. A Q&A form that was
put up shortly after the news broken confirmed as much, with this being
the standout quote:
"T-Mobile USA remains an independent company. The acquisition is expected
to be completed in approximately 12 months. We do not offer the iPhone
We offer cutting edge devices like the Samsung Galaxy S 4G and coming
soon our new Sidekick 4G."
It's really interesting that T-Mobile decided to call out the iPhone.
It's as if they knew the question would be coming. So, in short, you
won't be able to buy an iPhone for T-Mobile's network anytime soon, but
that's just for now. What about the iPhone 5? If it's LTE-enabled, get
ready for the questions to begin swirling all over again...
