T-Mobile sits quietly out of the picture during Apple's event
Still, it begs the question whether or not they’ll be negatively impacted mainly because they’re simply out of the picture when it comes to the latest iPhone model. Of course, we’ve already seen how T-Mobile is trying to lure iPhone users to its grasp, which is evident from the microSIM cards they’re selling for the iPhone 4 and iPad currently. Either way, it wouldn’t surprise us if they can continue to attract customers who happen to get the latest model unlocked.
But does the lack of an iPhone truly hurt T-Mobile? Will they continue to bleed subscribers simply due to the fact that people are so enamored by the handset that they’re willing to bail and side with a rival carrier? Honestly, it’s still hard to say whether an iPhone would save T-Mobile at this point – especially when they’ve been living on without one all this time.
Conversely, you can’t count them out when it comes to exclusive handsets. That’s because they’ve managed to nab some past respectable ones in the Android world – such as the Google Nexus One and Nexus S. Granted that they eventually became available with other carriers, T-Mobile was the very first to offer them right from the onset. So, does it really matter that they’re not in with the iPhone 4S?
