We have mentioned on a number of occasions about the iPhone 4G and the hope that Apple will launch their new smartphone this year — not only on AT&T but Verizon as well. A new rumor has now started that T-Mobile could be getting the iPhone either in 2010 or 2011.
The original report of this story comes from the Financial Times — the British newspaper was in a conversation with Deutsche Telekom’s CEO. The talks between the two went on to discuss that the iPhone will come to T-Mobile USA this year or next, but until then the main focus will be on Android handsets.
Engadget picks up on the fact that T-Mobile makes it sound as though Google Android is being used until something better comes along — that would be the iPhone then. It is no secret that T-Mobile — Americas fourth largest mobile carrier — is losing out to the likes of AT&T, the iPhone could help change its fortunes.
We do not know how much truth there is in this rumor; this could be one that we have to take with a pinch of salt. If you had the choice of the iPhone going to Sprint, T-Mobile or Verizon, which one would you choose?
