What a hand-job! iphone 4S? "There had been speculation that Apple would reveal a more radical revision of the phone, an "iPhone 5." The no-show leaves room for speculation that Apple will reveal a new model in less than a year, perhaps one equipped to take advantage of Verizon's and AT&T's new high-speed data networks."

 

Sorry trend-whores. Come back next year.

Didn't Apple already try that "exclusive deal" thing with some carrier of other?

If this turns out to be true then this Sounds like the start of a "Love/Hate" relationship the Apple fanboys will have with Apple..... HAHA

The sad thing is when this doesn't come true the people that stated this will just laugh and say "oh well" made a good story didn't it? Losers.

on WiMax? Might be mistaken, but isn't that not the greatest tech?

Actually, WiMax has more bandwidth and can deliver more content than LTE, but it is more cotly to deploy, as it takes more towers than LTE does.

huh. so it's still not the greatest since it requires a higher cost than LTE. I have Sprint, and its coverage sucks, but I like their data plan better. I just want more and better 4G coverage before more 4G phones are released

This would be interesting.  However I wouldn't be surprised in the least if Sprint followed up with this bombshell with the announcement they're doing away with their unlimited plans.

Pretty sure they will not do away with their unlimited plans, or add data throttling and/or caps. They know thats what sets them apart from their competitors and thats all they've got. Well that and the iphone5.

Well sprint fucking sucks but maybe Apple will force them to improve their network.

1. In what ways does Sprint "fucking suck"? They have a solid network with not many dropped calls, damn cheap plans for what you get, and a strong line of phones.

2. Yeah, AT&T's network is soooo awesome now cause of the iphone...

Sprint's "damn cheap" plans are comparable to Verizon or AT&T.  It's $100 for an unlimited plan.  I fail to see how that is "damn cheap."  Virgin Mobile on the other hand... now there's a cheap plan.

Oh, I can see the shitstorm brewing now, if this comes to pass.
