In a perfect world, we’d all get a chance at the new iPhone 5 regardless of carrier. However, with such a powerful and elusive product, there’s always one bad apple in the barrel. BGR is reporting that a close source tipped them off to a deal between Sprint and Apple for exclusive rights to the iPhone 5. It’s backed up by the WSJ reporting that Sprint has entered into an agreement with Apple to purchase $20 billion (yes, $20 billion) worth of iPhones over the next four years and that it will be a 4G WiMAX device.
However, the 4G WiMAX claim is in direct conflict with WSJ’s report of no 4G. While I don’t think it would be past Apple to secure such a lucrative deal, I’d like to think we AT&T’ers… the ones from day one… the OG’s… would have access as well, I hope.
What are your thoughts? Think there’s an exclusive in the works? We’ll soon find out.
