If you’re a T-Mobile customer assuming that the big pink T will be getting the iPhone 5 this year just by dint of it being in bed with AT&T over a possible merger, think again.
According to a new leaked internal document, T-Mobile won’t be getting the iPhone 5 in 2011.
The document, obtained by Tmo News, says that T-Mobile will be introducing two new smartphones in fall to stimulate customer interest.
However, in a quote from T-Mobile’s Chief Marketing Officer Cole Broadman, T-Mobile will not get the iPhone 5 this year.
Of course, it’s possible T-Mobile will get the iPhone 4S — the cheaper pre-paid version of the existing iPhone 4 — this year, although somehow, I feel like they’d be hinting towards that if it were true.
Pretty disappointing news all around for T-Mobile customers, but don’t fret too much: if you’re desperate for the iPhone 5 but don’t want to sell your soul to the big two, you can always join Sprint: they should get the iPhone 5 this year.
