It seems T-Mobile will not be getting the iPhone 5 this year if you believe T-Mobile Chief Marketing Officer, Cole Brodman.
When speaking about how hard T-Mobile is working to improve its business, Brodman noted that they would be receiving to new smartphones for the holidays but quickly added:
“We are not going to get the iPhone 5 this year.”
With Sprint likely getting the iPhone, it almost seems like a contradiction when he says they’re working hard to improve T-Mobile’s business.
With the iPhone on all major carriers but T-Mobile, their ship may sink even faster than it already is. In the end it may not matter if AT&T gets its way. This also contradicts earlier sightings of an iPhone 4 running on T-Mobile, reports of an insider claiming that T-Mobile will be getting the iPhone 5 and T-Mobile teasing consumers with its sale of Micro SIM cards specifically for the iPhone.
