Rumors that Apple will be offering the iPhone through T-Mobile in addition to AT&T have been circulating for some time, and now it seems a source from inside Apple is claiming a deal is imminent, too.
The unnamed source at Apple told the Examiner “There were talks about it, then strong rumors. Then, there were problems with the carrier. But now, the iPhone will definitely be available for T-Mobile.”
Apparently the deal will come together so T-Mobile can begin selling the iPhone in the U.S. in early 2011. If true, AT&T’s exclusive iPhone partnership with Apple has only a few months left.
Since Apple doesn’t comment on unannounced products or deals, and the anonymous source can’t be verified, this latest report that AT&T’s exclusive iPhone deal is about to end should be treated as just another rumor.
