Radio Shack inventory system lists iPhone 5 16GB, 32GB for Verizon, AT&T, and Sprint

“According to an alleged screenshot taken of a Radio Shack internal inventory page, both a 16-gigabyte iPhone 5 and a 32-gigabyte iPhone 5 are a-coming,” David Murphy reports for PC Magazine. “It’s a bit more a significant bit of evidence than the guessing game that arose from an earlier internal Sprint memo, which told company employees that vacations were blacked out between September 30 and October 15 due to the ‘possibility of a major phone launch.'”

“Sprint is still allegedly going to be offering the iPhone 5 with an unlimited data plan,” Murphy reports. “There’s no indication of how long that the plan might stick around post-launch, as has been the case with other ‘unlimited’ data plans on competing carriers, but the move – if true – is aimed at giving Sprint some kind of competitive advantage against AT&T and Verizon.”

Murphy reports, “Sprint, in this case, would sit in the market as the only iPhone carrier with a truly unlimited data plan.”

MacDailyNews Take: If true, AT&T should have waited on the T-Mobile deal until after iPhone 5 appears on every other major US carrier. It certainly sounds like T-Mobile USA is going to be quite the odd man out very soon.

  2. If this is so, it will only prove that Apple was in agreement (in on it) in having AT&T acquire T-Mobile and to that end would what ever it could including not releasing an iPhone for T-Mobile.

    If this comes to pass Apple will have effectively circumvented anti-racketeering laws; and gotten away with it.
