Will T-Mobile’s iPhone 5 Deal Change the Wireless Industry?
Tuesday afternoon, wireless carrier T-Mobile finally relented and announced that it will begin carrying Apple’s (NASDAQ: AAPL) iPhone. Bears can attack market share numbers all they want, but we’ve shown plenty of evidence supporting why the iPhone is exceptionally popular. Commscore showed data giving Apple a 37.8% market share in January, Verizon (NYSE: VZ) reported that iPhones accounted for 63% of smartphones during the fourth quarter, and AT&T (NYSE: T) had iPhones accounting for 84% of its smartphone mix during the same period. Demand for the product remains robust, in Valuentum's view.
