Unless Apple has constructed a separate iPhone 5 model for Sprint’s 4G, the odds are that Sprint won’t have the iPhone until the iPhone 6. That’s not the news which Sprint users want to hear, but it’s the sobering reality of carrier and network politics. And that’s nothing compared to what T-Mobile users are facing.
But now there’s been doubt cast over the merger prospects thanks to the recent stock market downturn. And while T-Mobile is in limbo, the odds of it going out and striking its own iPhone 5 deal with Apple feel remote. And that’s on top of T-Mobile’s own 4G incompatibility issues. With the “will they or won’t they” nature of the merger perhaps taking some time to finally settle, it feels like T-Mobile is also more likely to end up with the iPhone 6.
The first batch of insider semi-confirmation comes from the traditionally reliable 9to5 Mac, which has trusted sources saying that the launch date for the iPhone 5 will be October 7. That same date has been tossed around in rumors for a few weeks now, which is in itself a point for its reliability, and it also makes sense concerning recent reports of Apple's orders to suppliers.
Perhaps the more interesting aspect of this rumor is the pre-order status. Last year, the iPhone 4 was officially announced on June 7, and pre-orders started a week later, with the ultimate on-sale date being June 15. This makes a Sept 7/ Oct 7/ Oct 14 schedule rather more likely, although another level of uncertainty exists concerning exactly how many different models of iPhone there will be (i.e., an iPhone 4S update and/ or a completely new iPhone 5, a low-end model and a high-end model, etc.).
For the new cost and technology many iPhone application development company are available in the market which are producing low cost price with high flexibility of iPhone models. Recently we can analyze the cost comparison as BlackBerry Bold 9900 T-Mobile more expensive than the iPhone 5?
Angry bloggers and customers comment on the new BlackBerry Bold 9900 of T-Mobile sporting a tag price that is more expensive than some high-end Android Smartphone’s, as well as the most popular Smartphone in USA, the iPhone 4.
T-Mobile USA announces the new BlackBerry Bold 9900, the GSM version of Verizon and Sprint’s Bold 9930. The Bold 9900 is a touch screen phone with BlackBerry physical QWERTY portrait keyboard. Under the cover, the device is powered by 1.2 GHz single-core processor, 640×480 screen touch screen resolution and the new BlackBerry OS 7 out of the box. The device will debut in stores on August 31st.
Surprisingly, the new BlackBerry Bold 9900 will play the “premium” Smartphone strategy, sporting a tag price of $299.99 after a $50 mail-in rebate, so that is $50 more expensive than the CDMA Bold 9930 of both Verizon and Sprint, and if taken without the mail-in rebate, the Bold 9900 is more expensive than the most popular Smartphone in the world based on market share and units shipped, the iPhone 4.
