Rumors of a Sprint iPhone are nothing new, but in the past several months we've seen an uptick in the amount of reports claiming that the device is coming. Keeping up with that trend today is a claim from BeatWeek that Sprint signal repeaters are being installed in and around one Apple store in Austin, Texas. The source of the rumor says that his company, an electrical contractor, has been hired to install a total of five CDMA/Sprint 4G signal boosting repeaters in The Domain in Austin. One of these repeaters is reportedly set to be installed inside the Apple store at The Domain.
If Sprint really is launching its own iPhone later this year, it wouldn't be a shock to see these repeaters installed in Apple's retail locations so that Now Network customers would get a good signal inside Apple stores. Considering that these Sprint repeaters were being installed all over The Domain, though, this report probably isn't conclusive evidence that a Sprint iPhone is indeed around the corner. Still, it is another rumor to add to the pile, and it could become more interesting if more reports of Sprint repeaters being installed in Apple stores pop up. Now that we've seen the rumor mill churn out a few more reports on the Sprint iPhone over the past couple of days, where do you all stand on the matter? Will the Now Network be joining AT&T and Verizon on the list of carriers offering the iPhone later this year?
