Welcome, Sprint. It’s been a long and arduous journey, but you made it to the promise land; you finally scored the iPhone.
This: image from Apple’s online store, confirms that Sprint will be the official third US carrier of the next iPhone.
These are the images that are displayed when asked to select a carrier on Apple’s website. See the Verzion and AT&T images for comparison.
Just yesterday, the image wasn’t there, but we checked today, and sure enough, there it is. What could this mean for Sprint as a carrier?
Most importantly, Sprint can compete with AT&T and Verizon when it comes to their Smartphone offerings. No offense to the Evo, and other Android phones, but iPhones they are not.
Even Sprint’s CEO admitted that Sprint has been at a disadvantage by not having the iPhone. This time, Sprint wasn’t taking any chances.
Yesterday, a WSJ report revealed that Sprint had made a steep, “bet the company” investment, to guarantee their seat at Apple’s table.
Whether or not this will pay off or not, still remains to be seen.
