 iPhone 5 -- Sprint scores exclusive thanks to $20 billion deal with Apple?
The Wall Street Journal is reporting that Sprint has entered into an agreement with Apple to purchase over $20 billion worth of iPhones over the next four years — that’s around 30 million iPhones. It’s said that Sprint won’t even break even on the transaction until 2014, which is surely a huge risk on Sprint’s part, but why? I have been going back and forth for weeks with one of my incredibly solid industry contacts on a piece of information that I couldn’t really process at first — information that is so unbelievable, even from a source this solid, that I couldn’t report it. With this new WSJ report on an Apple/Sprint deal, however, it doesn’t look so crazy. Hit the break for more.

I have been told that Sprint will be getting the iPhone 5 — yes the real iPhone 5, not the iPhone 4S — as an exclusive. And it will be a 4G WiMAX device. AT&T and Verizon would launch the iPhone 4S and get the iPhone 5 some time in the first quarter of next year as an LTE device. Globally, the iPhone 5 might be available as a 4G HSPA+ device.

In this scenario, the iPhone 4S Apple will introduce tomorrow will feature the following:

A low voltage Apple A5 CPU (it won’t be the same as the iPad 2 chip, clock for clock).
Updated front and back camera sensors. FaceTime HD in the front, 8-megapixel 1080p HD video recording in the back.
Multiband 3G Qualcomm chipset — North American & International GSM/UMTS/HSPA bands for AT&T and Global carriers, North American CDMA & International GSM/UMTS/HSPA bands for Verizon and Sprint.
NFC support.
Metal or “premium” plastic on the back case.

And here is what my source said about the iPhone 5 that will launch as a Sprint exclusive:

Faster CPU.
Larger 4-inch screen, similar to LG’s NOVA display but with a higher resolution.
1GB of RAM.
Slightly larger design overall, but thinner and with a larger battery.
32GB of storage.
iPhone 5 exclusive software and APIs (Assistant).
Dedicated a.ssistant button, possibly integrated with the new home button, “think gestures or a two-stage button like a camera shutter key).
This thread is different from the other thread...other spread specifies the $20 bil investment, but didn't discuss the fact that Sprint may be the ONLY people getting the iPhone 5 next week...

Sounds a little weird...if that's the case, why would anyone on AT&T or Verizon buy the 4S if they're gonna get the 5 in a few months?

But if those specs are true, :omfg:

Just read this. It kinda makes sense, but doesn't at the same time. Why even put out a 4s then? Sprint won if this is true, but it's going to take at least two years to break even. Customers may lose in the long run and if it's still gonna drop in less than six months on Verizon or AT&T why would anyone go to Sprint as opposed to waiting? Unlimited data? Sprint's about to be Apple's bi*ch. Talk about making a deal with the devil.

Die hard apple fans don't wait lol. These are the people that sell Xboxes to get an iPhone. There's no way Sprint will make an epic come-up on this if it's true, but they will make SOME noise.

Because that phone with Sprints plan = subscribers. 6 months off the market will have most people switching to get it.

Sprint is gonna get so many new activations. People who have the 4 aren't eligible for an upgrade so they are gonna jump ship

I believe this..sprint sucks d!ck, people will buy it and hate it..I use to jump cell carriers spending over a grand a year on phones and cancelling...didn't give a single sh*t til I quit my job and lost the benefit of them paying for everything...now I stick to att b/c it's the best, verizon has already been proven to provoke cancer cells by their 3g sensors being turned up (this is how they get better 3g coverage with less towers than att)...

I wouldn't tote that you have sprint..it blows d!ck and is in talks of being bought by a mexican, carlos slim who r*pes his customers...

unless you live in the boonies, Sprint's service is fine. only problem is the 3G speeds, but, once again, unless you live in the boonies you probably have 4G, which more than makes up for that.

anyways, this would've been huge if I didn't find out about windows phone 7 this year...now I'm probably just going to switch to AT&T since they seem to be the only people who are pushing that OS...or whoever drops the dopest Nokia WP7 phone
