Deutsche Telekom, the German parent company of T-Mobile USA, announced at its annual investors conference that it has reached an agreement with Apple to sell products from the company in the U.S. DT confirmed previous reports that T-Mobile will sell Apple devices beginning in 2013, though it did not cite which specific models of the Apple iPhone or iPad will be sold.
After several years of rumors and reports of T-Mobile offering the iPhone, the most recent being last week's Forbes report quoting a Merrill Lynch analyst, Apple and T-Mobile have finally reached an agreement to officially connect the iPhone to the nation's fourth largest carrier. T-Mobile has been refarming its HSPA+ network in order to enable faster speeds with unlocked Apple products used by customers, but today's deal will likely make the device available officially.
More details about device specifics, price, and release date are expected to emerge soon.source: Deutsche Telekom
