T-Mobile not getting the iPhone 5 this year

T-Mobile not getting the iPhone 5 this year
This could be seen as bad news for T-Mobile customers, but we're not so sure if it's that awful. A leaked internal document has been released by TmoNews is stating that T-Mobile will not be getting the iPhone 5 this year. Of course, that may not be so bad because if you really wanted to jump on the iPhone bandwagon, we can't see how waiting on a T-Mobile variant should stop you. 

The leaked document is from T-Mobile's Chief Marketing Officer Cole Brodman. The document says that T-Mobile will be getting 2 new smartphones, though no information is given about what those may be (Nexus Prime, anyone?) and ends with a flat statement that T-Mobile is not getting the iPhone 5 this year. 

Of course, that could mean that T-Mobile will be getting the iPhone 4s this year, and, it certainly points to the likelihood that T-Mo will be getting the iPhone 5 next year. But, at the very least, it's clear that if you want an iPhone 5, you'll have to choose between AT&T, Verizon and Sprint if you're living in America.
