PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless I generally try to steer clear from the silly and crazy rumour mill surrounding soon-to-be-expected-to-be-launched devices, but this one is kind of interesting. The Wall Street Journal is reporting that the US carrier Sprint is pretty much betting the company on Apple's next iPhone, ordering a staggering 30.5 million of them. At the same time, BGR reports that the iPhone 5 will be exclusive to Sprint (in the US at least), as a WiMAX device.

This makes no sense at all. Sprint has already hinted around that it plans to ditch Wi-Max in favor of LTE. Sprint's existing Wi-Max coverage is tiny and only available in very few places as well. Apple already makes CDMA and GSM phones, with LTE to be the next standard for all carriers in a few years, so why would they make a Wi-Max phone for only one carrier that has stated it plans to switch to LTE?


...because Iphones come out almost every year and the Iphone 6 will probably be LTE. Besides all Iphones have been a little behind the times. Remember when you couldn't even get one that did 3G?
