T-Mobile CEO Talks iPhone 5 Release Date, Price & Plans

By  | 

While we have already received confirmation that the iPhone is coming to T-Mobile, there was no word of when exactly. Now thanks to the CEO of T-Mobile, we have a more distinct release window.

T-Mobile iPhone 5 release window given

At CES 2013 earlier today, the T-Mobile CEO said that they have brought the iPhone 5 release window from 6-9 months down to 3-4 months. Now before you get excited and think that this gives you a better chance of getting one subsidized, think again.

According to the CEO, they will also be ending subsidies earlier. What this means is that when the iPhone 5 does arrive, you will have to pay the full retail price tag – currently set as $650. So you better start saving up. On the plus side, the T-Mobile plan you would sign up for would be cheaper than those available on rival networks and it would not need a contract term.

The CEO of T-Mobile is so confident that this will work out for the carrier that he estimates the amount of subscribers to increase by around 5% or higher. I guess we will just have to wait & see.

Xbox 360, Playstation 3, Nintendo Wii, PC, iPhone and Android games keep Berke busy at work all day. Honestly though we’re not sure why we’re paying him as it should be the other way around.
