Antenna issues aside, Apple is not recalling iPhone 4, and it certainly isn’t too scared of potential costs. PC Magazine reports that Apple’s fiscal 3rd quarter for 2010 was a fantastic success, in no small part due to sales of the iPad. Apple made $3.25 billion net profit on revenue of $15.7 billion. Yet that may not even be the most explosive news coming out of the land of Steve Jobs. A “highly placed source” claims T-Mobile may take on iPhone 4 sales by the third quarter of this year, as outlined by Cult of Mac. The team-up is 80 percent likely, writes PC World.
What couldn’t T-Mobile accomplish with iPhone 4?
T-Mobile would rise from America’s fourth-largest wireless carrier to the very top with iPhone 4 in its corner. Frequency issues, though, could get in the way, indicates PC World. T-Mobile uses a non-standard band, and iPhone 4 hasn’t been tested on all the carrier’s ranges.
Possibility of yet another iPhone 4 unsubstantiated rumor
Considering Cult of Mac’s overall track record with predictions, PC World may be right in reminding us not to lose our heads. Considering the network cap difficulties Apple has encountered with AT&T (and the relative animosity Verizon has shown toward Steve Jobs and crew), it could be that T-Mobile has the bandwidth to spare for iPhone users and an as-yet clean and clear relationship with Apple. Since Apple is already in cahoots with T-Mobile parent company Deustche Telekom in Europe, perhaps T-Mobile has its foot in the door.
Are you ready for the T-Mobile jump?
If T-Mobile does indeed enter a partnership with Apple, the pool won’t stay sparsely populated for long. Even with antenna troubles, iPhone 4 is quite attractive to tech buyers. It more than competes against Droid and other U.S. smartphones. But perhaps you can beg to differ; let us know what you think by sounding off below.
