Why is T-Mobile US selling its own branded USB cable licensed for Apple iPhone?

“T-Mobile has reportedly begun selling its own branded ‘Charge & Sync USB Cable’ licensed for Apple’s iPhone, fueling speculation that the handset could soon become available on the American carrier,” Katie Marsal reports for AppleInsider.

“A photo of the product, also licensed for use with Apple’s line of iPods, was provided by an anonymous source to Engadget on Friday. The source indicated that T-Mobile’s corporate stores in the U.S. will now carry the cables, leading to speculation that their stocking could be in preparation for an iPhone launch,” Marsal reports. “Since the device debuted in 2007, the iPhone has been exclusive to AT&T in the U.S.”

Marsal reports, “The USB cable could also be seen as evidence that T-Mobile will begin selling the iPad.”
