T-Mobile iPhone 5 Available By Summer But Only At $650+

By  | 

There is some good and bad news coming from T-Mobile this month for iPhone fans. First the good – T-Mobile had confirmed that the iPhone 5 will be coming to the network in the next 3 to 4 months, that is closer than the previously estimated 6-9 months time frame.

T-Mobile iPhone 5 release ties in with subsidy

However while it is good to know that we could see the T-Mobile iPhone 5 before the summer, the T-Mobile CEO also added that it will happen around the same time that they end subsidies. What this essentially means is that the iPhone 5 won’t be $199 on contract like it is with other carriers. Instead expect to pay the full sticker tag.

The T-Mobile CEO however is optimistic that iPhone 5 fans won’t be put off by the $650 base price tag of a 16GB iPhone 5. Because they will be offering lower monthly bills in turn and such T-Mobile hopes it will in fact increase their market share.

So it looks like if you’re interested in getting a T-Mobile iPhone 5 you better save up. Additionally, the timing seems to tie in with T-Mobile’s LTE service launch which is also good news.

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.
