T-Mobile USA exec: No iPhone 5 in 2011

A T-Mobile USA executive has reportedly said in no uncertain terms that the carrier will not be offering the iPhone 5 this year. TmoNews, citing an image that purportedly came from an internal T-Mobile site, reports that the company’s Chief Marketing Officer Cole Brodman told a town hall meeting of T-Mobile employees that “we are not going to get the iPhone 5 this year.” Interestingly, a prototype iPhone compatible with T-Mobile’s 3G network that was photographed earlier in the year carried an internal model designation of “N94”, which is widely believed to represent the so-called “iPhone 4S”; as such, T-Mobile could in theory begin offering such a handset later this year while not disproving Brodman’s statement.
