CNET reports that T-Mobile’s “Uncarrier” event, to be held on Tuesday, will have some iPhone related news in store for existing and future T-Mobile subscribers.
Earlier this year, the carrier had announced that it’ll soon be carrying the iPhone officially on its network, but it didn’t specify an exact date.
From CNET’s report:
Apple’s flagship device, long a gap in T-Mobile’s smartphone line-up, will play a prominent role in tomorrow’s “Uncarrier” event, according to a person familiar with the launch plans.
There are no details yet on whether pricing or availability information will be provided. The iPhone won’t be immediately available, according to the person.
CNET also expects T-Mobile’s 4G LTE network to be officially launched tomorrow.
T-Mobile has publicly denounced smartphone subsidies, and plans to use its recently announced “uncarrier” contract-free plans to differentiate itself from other carriers. An iPhone would make the offering even more compelling, which T-Mobile hopes would help reduce churn rates and bring in customers from rival networks.
T-Mobile’s “Uncarrier” event will be starting at 11:00 a.m. EDT / 8:00 a.m. PDT tomorrow.
