Back in July, I began speculation about possibility of T-Mobile getting the iPhone some time in 2010. Here's the low-down on why I had thought this was a possible, if somewhat improbable, scenario. 3G and GSM.
In the United States, if you want access to a GSM network, you've got one of two major choices. ATT and T-Mobile. As you know, T-Mobile is the smaller of the two. It's in the 4th place as far as the major networks are concerned, behind Sprint. As Apple as repeatedly said that there will be no CDMA version of the iPhone. Conventional wisdom is that Apple will wait until LTE, the next generation wireless network, has sufficient coverage before the iPhone becomes available to Verizon's customers (both ATT and Verizon Wireless will migrate to LTE as their next generation wireless broadband network).
So why T-Mobile? 40 Million reasons. More at Onxo Mobile Devices
