Looks like those rumors last week about the iPhone coming to T-Mobile had some validity.

According to an announcement made today by T-Mobile’s parent company, Deutsche Telekom, T-Mobile and Apple have agreed to join forces and sell products next year.

There were no details as to what products will be sold, though signs point to a T-Mobile iPhone. The nation’s fourth-largest carrier already has 1.5 million active unlocked iPhone’s in its network.

Currently, T-Mobile does not offer LTE and instead has been widening its 4G HSPA+ reach to help increase speeds on unlocked devices like the iPhone. The company will debut a 4G LTE network early next year, and it wouldn’t be surprising to see it happen at the same time T-Mobile launches Apple products.

    T-Mobile’s partnership with Solavei to market their service through a social marketing model is brilliant.

    Pay people to share their service is a great strategy in this crummy economy, and they will work hard.

    So I am confident that Solavei will give T-Mobile a huge advantage in the cell phone battle.
