Clearly, Sprint CEO Dan Hesse knows (whether or not) he’s getting the iPhone in a few weeks. But he’s obviously sworn to secrecy by Apple.
The problem is that he has to tell investors how he’s going to come up with all of the additional money and subscribers that will come with getting the iPhone and offering it on unlimited data plans. When asked about the “rumored device” he said,
“If we get it–if–we may have to adjust our guidance for that,”
Last week, Sprint CFO Joe Euteneuer did the same dance, saying that Sprint’s network could handle the iPhone, not that it was getting it.
It will indeed be interesting to see how Sprint’s network can handle the iPhone, especially with unlimited plans.
In other ‘News’, Al Gore mentioned that Apple would be releasing new iPhones next month.
