Sprint might become the third US mobile carrier to officially offer Apple’s iPhone, following AT&T and Verizon (which started selling a CDMA version of the smartphone earlier this year).
According to The Wall Street Journal, “people familiar with the matter” (yes, those proverbial and always anonymous people) said the iPhone 5 would become available at Sprint in mid-October. Apparently, Sprint will also sell the iPhone 4 (maybe that rumored 8GB version) in addition to the new iPhone 5.
“Two of the people” said that Verizon and AT&T would also introduce the iPhone 5 in mid-October – this is in line with other previous rumors.
As reported earlier today, the iPhone 5 likely has both CDMA and GSM connectivity, so it will be among Verizon’s and Sprint’s top of the line global smartphones.
It’s not the first time we’re hearing the iPhone is finally coming to Sprint – and it’s also not like Apple doesn’t want to add another major carrier to the iPhone bandwagon. But nothing is certain until it’s official, so let’s wait for Apple and Sprint to confirm this.
