A Wall Street Journal on Monday said more than Sprint and $ 20 million in a deal with Apple for the iPhone. The report suggests Sprint bought more than 30 million iPhones from the manufacturer. Later reports suggested incorrectly Sprint could have secured exclusively for the next iPhone, while Verizon Wireless and AT & T would get a smaller version of the phone next.
Sprint is the last major (outside T-Mobile, which is in the T & purchase process) that has not gotten the iPhone. It has had to survive by offering unlimited data deals – something Verizon Wireless and AT & T have dropped so much – and popular phones running Google’s mobile operating system Android. That strategy took its toll, as Sprint had about 52 million subscribers at the end of the second quarter of this year. In comparison, Verizon Wireless has about 106 million subscribers and AT & T has about 99 million dollars.
Apple also introduced a revamped lineup for the iPod Nano, a smaller version of the iPod Touch with a touch screen and a pedometer, and a new version of the iPod Touch. While many expected the company to release a drastic update to the phone, consumers only received this fall is a suped-up version of the iPhone iPhone 4 called 4S. That phone has a more powerful chip, more memory and a better camera, but still looks identical to the iPhone 4.
Pre-orders for iPhone beginning 4S Friday, October 7. The company will start shipping the phone the following week, on October 14. It is available with a new contract for 2 years and 199, and 299 and 399 and the 16GB, 32GB and 64GB phone models, respectively.
