“Cult of Mac” reports that a highly placed source at T-Mobile revealed what he believed where the chances of Apple and T-Mobile joining hands. The source said there was an 80% chance of T-Mobile getting the iPhone 4 in the third quarter of this year.
Of course what 80% exactly means in this scenario is indeterminable. However this rumor only further supports what most of already know: Apple is looking to end the AT&T exclusive relationship and looking for other carriers. Sprint is not an eligible candidate. T-Mobile is a GSM network and an interesting proposition.
One of the biggest reasons to believe that T-Mobile will get Apple’s latest smartphone is a statement from Deutsche Telekom’s CEO in March, saying that the USA branch is hoping to get the iPhone later this year.
Whether any of this is true, we will find out soon enough. Q3 is not far away.
