Good article. Can I wait to 1st quarter for LTE iPhone?


@BGR: Sprint guarantees to buy over $20 billion in iPhones from Apple, launching the iPhone 5.

Dan Hesse is crazy. Sprint will be in the red until after 2014. He is betting on buying 30 million iPhones at 670 a piece.

That would explain why the event is being held at Apple's Campus. So their own security team can protect them when they are attacked by AT&T and Verizon customers. :eek:

Whether this is true or not, I'm glad I got my white iPhone 4 without renewing my contract. If Sprint gets the iPhone 5 with WIMAX while AT&T and Verizon don't even get it until next year, I would very likely make the switch. I'll miss my rollover minutes, but who needs 'em when you have a $79.99 unlimited everything plan?

Woo Hoo! That is a stupid stupid rumor. It would be a major betrayal if Apple did that. It makes no sense though. Apple is trying to be #1. That is not the way to do it.

All carriers who are getting the iPhone should have the iPhone 5 available to them and their customers.

I love the simultaneous voice and data too much.
