    Default Analyst Says T-Mobile Deal Means Big Business for Apple


    On Wednesday, Sterne Agee's resident Apple watcher, analyst Shaw Wu, told investors that Apple will see no shortage of benefits from T-Mobile's introduction of the iPhone 5.

    On Tuesday, the nation's fourth largest carrier confirmed that it would begin covering the popular Apple touchscreen smartphone on April 12. Wu believes Apple could pick up plenty of new loyalists through the carrier’s 42 million subscribers (after T-Mobile’s pending acquisition of MetroPCS).

    Apple already has access to 116 million Verizon Wireless subscribers, 107 million AT&T subscribers, and 55 million Sprint subscribers.

    “While T-Mobile USA has lost customers, its core customer base remains loyal to its lower-cost and unlimited data plans,” Wu says. “We believe this will help AAPL capture incremental customers and strengthen its position against GOOG Android, which got its start on T-Mobile USA.”

    WU's firm is keeping a Buy rating ON AAPL with a price target of $630.

    yep, takes fragmentation up another notch. now you have all 4 carriers with different features for all their iPhones. some do simultaneous voice and data, some dont do HD voice, some do LTE

    Yeah I wish they didn't require voice plans for phones... I would just get rid of it altogether and use Talkatone for all my calls, with unlimited "minutes" through Google voice... I was thinking of doing that with my iPad and ditching my voice plan altogether, but alas, that **** is too big to carry around everywhere, haha.

    Yeah..one phone with multiple carriers/options is much easier to keep up with rather than 100 phones with carrier options.
