iPhone 4 Coming to T-Mobile in UK
The iPhone 4 is coming to the UK via T-Mobil
e. This evening, there is great buzz surrounding the announcement, which for now, simply foretells of the smartphone's arrival on T-Mobile. At present, the UK T-Mobile site is only asking visitors to "register their interest" by filling out a form. If you do, T-Mobile will keep you posted about pre-ordering, prices, plans, and "everything else you need."
In recent weeks, some mobile industry analysts predicted that T-Mobile would be the next US carrier to offer service for the iPhone. Kaufman Bros analyst Shaw Wu
observed following the conclusion of WWDC 2010: “While the general consensus is around Verizon (which we believe will happen eventually) we continue to believe that T-Mobile USA is the most likely candidate given its use of similar cellular technology (to) AT&T.”
while there are rampant rumors that this announcement from T-Mobile also includes coverage in the US, it does not. Of course, there is no telling if the carrier will soon make an announcement regarding iPhone 4 service in the states, but there is no confirmation of yet as to that potential eventuality. In the UK, however, the iPhone 4 is expanding by leaps and bounds and finding new homes though new carriers. 02 is now touting on its home page
that the iPhone 4 will also be available through the British carrier.
