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.

I think the added competition actually helps drive iPhone sales. People walk into mobile stores and try out the fully working iPhone display right next to the mock-up Android devices.
