At the beginning of December, T-Mobile’s parent company Deutsche Telekom announced that it would start selling Apple products in 2013. Naturally, neither company said exactly which iDevices would be offered, but it seems silly for a cell carrier not to carry one of the world’s most popular phones – meaning that some iPhone will likely be offered to T-Mobile customers come next year.
Since one of the reasons that T-Mobile took so long to carry the iPhone was having a GSM network that was different than AT&T’s, the former company is putting forth many resources to make its network compatible with Apple’s successful handset – including opening up new, iPhone-compatible HSPA+ networks in a variety of cities. Today, the company added 14 new cities to the existing list of cities with T-Mobile HSPA+ networks.
In my opinion, T-Mobile is the most interesting carrier in the US today. Not only did the company introduce a truly unlimited data plan earlier this year, but it’s also putting some quality handsets into its portfolio at an amazing rate – all while keeping its amazing plans.
