Rumor: T-Mobile Getting iPhone 3GS In A Couple Months

We're hearing a lot about a Verizon iPhone these days, but all of the sudden there's new life to the prospect of T-Mobile getting the device, and now it seems it may be getting it first.

Out of nowhere, Wired's editor in chief editor Chris Anderson wrote the following in a <a href="http://twitter.com/chr1sa/status/23868435595">Twitter update</a>: "A T-Mobile manager casually mentioned to me that they're going to get the iPhone 3GS (but not 4, oddly) later this year. Common knowledge?"

Certainly, we've seen more non-AT&T iPhone rumors than you can shake a stick at. It's common knowledge that these rumors are floating out there. Everyone has learned to be very skeptical of everything until an official announcement is made. But knowing Apple, an official announcement won't come until the phone is actually available. But that's a very tough secret to hold on to through to the end.

A T-Mobile iPhone would of course be much easier to create. That's because T-Mobile and AT&T use the same wireless network standard, a technology known as GSM. Verizon and Sprint use a different tech called CDMA, and to have an iPhone compatible with that format would require going back to the phone and actually change all the innards of the device.

Also curious is the idea that a different mobile provider would get the iPhone 3GS instead of the iPhone 4. Well, at least they won't have antenna problems.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
