Looks like Sprint and Apple are gearing up for the iPhone5 …
Sprint may have begun installing signal boosting equipment in and around Apple retail stores ahead of the rumored iPhone 5 launch on the carrier in October, according to a new report.
“One thing I can tell you is that the electrical contractor that I work for is contracted to install Sprint “repeaters” at The Domain. There is a Apple Store at The Domain [in Austin, Texas],” a source told Beatweek recently. “One of the “repeaters” is to be installed INSIDE the Apple Store. There is to be a total of 5 “repeaters” installed. The equipment is CDMA and 4G (Sprint).”
… but, a struggling economy is not making conditions any easier for Sprint (S) shareholders.
