A recent job posting from Apple hints at a possible budding relationship with Sprint that could bring the iPhone to one of the leaders in 4G technology. Stop it, AT&T, a blog focused on "activism against bandwidth caps and monopolistic behavior," has uncovered a job posting that may strengthen earlier rumors that Sprint is closer to having an iPhone running on its network.
The posting is for a new member for Apple's Carrier Engineering team, responsible for:
"day-to-day technical interactions with the one or more carriers to track down issues reported by the carrier, assist the carrier with testing they might be conducting and working with program management, software development and test teams to get products approved by the carriers."
That alone does not give any hint to the Sprint connection, but Sprint is based out of Kansas City, Miss., where the job was listed as being located.
There is no indication if the iPhone would come to Sprint this year or whether or not it would be 4G. Would you purchase a Sprint iPhone? Would it have to be 4G? Let me know in the comments!
