Is it true? There is a rumor from The Next Web that a “high placed sourced” at T-Mobile got inside information that they (T-Mobile) will be releasing the iPhone in the fall when AT&T’s exclusivity clause expires with Apple.
This rumor would make a lot sense actually. Both AT&T and T-Mobile are GSM carriers, so activating an iPhone on T-Mobile should as easy as flipping the switch on a SIM card.
The interesting twist to this rumor is that I believe T-Mobile is about to be acquired by Sprint, thus making Spring the third largest mobile phone carrier. This would also leave Verizon playing catch up to both AT&T and Sprint in the race to iPhone profits.
