All of America's "Big Four" wireless carriers will now have access to the iPhone

Late last month, T-Mobile USA tried to throw some water on rumors that it would finally be gaining access to Apple iPhone. The company's COO, Jim Alling, stated, "Make no mistake about it: We would love to carry the iPhone. However, we want the economies to be right for us."
 
Well, something must have happened in the past few weeks to make the financial details gel for T-Mobile USA and Apple. Today, T-Mobile USA parent company Deutsche Telekom announced in a press release that the wireless carrier will become the last of America's "Big Four" to gain access to Apple devices. In the long press release, there was just this one sentence:
 
In addition, T-Mobile USA has entered into an agreement with Apple to bring products to market together in 2013.
 
We can only assume that the family of iPhone smartphones and cellular iPad/iPad mini tablets will be making their way to T-Mobile USA's network.
 
Deutsche Telekom announced in early October that it would merge with MetroPCS in order to strengthen its fortunes in the United States. The combined company will have roughly 42 million customers, putting it within striking distance of third place Sprint with 52 million customers.

Finally they stopped being Deutsche-Telekom bags and made a decision. Even if you are against the iPhone you have to admit people want to buy the device and to be a carrier without an Apple offering, it's like having a fruit store and not selling Apples :)
