T-Mobile USA and Apple teaming up to offer products together in 2013Alex Wagner - Editorial Director of News and Content
You may want to sit down, T-Mobile folk, because we've got some news for you today that could be big. As part of Deutsche Telekom's Capital Markets Day analyst event that's being held today, DT has revealed that T-Mobile USA and Apple have entered into an agreement that'll see the two companies "bring products to market together in 2013." Unfortunately for the Magenta fans out there, that's all that was said on the matter, meaning that no specific Apple products were named.
T-Mobile is currently the only carrier of the big four U.S. operators without any Apple products on its roster, though Magenta has been busy refarming its 1900MHz network for HSPA+ service that is accessible to unlocked iPhones. Obviously there are still a lot of details of this T-Mobile-Apple deal that are still up in the air, including which Apple products T-Mo will offer and exactly when in 2013 those devices will launch, but this is still pretty big news for T-Mobile and its customers that've long been waiting for T-Mo to officially offer iOS hardware. What do all of you T-Mobile customers make of this news? How many of you would pick up an iPhone if it were officially offered by T-Mobile?
