Five paragraphs into a 770-word press release, at the end of a paragraph about infrastructure investments in Germany and the U.S., Deutsche Telekom (DT) confirmed Thursday what Merrill Lynch’s Scott Craig correctly predicted last week:
The assumption is that those “products” are the iPhone and the iPad, but PCMag’s Sascha Segan tweets that T-Mobile is talking about an as-yet-unannounced iPhone model. T-Mobile PR says only that additional details will be made available at a later date. Apple (AAPL) is only confirming that there is an agreement.
In a note to clients Thursday, RBC Capital’s Amit Daryanani estimates that T-Mobile could sell as many as 4.8 million iPhones in the first year alone.
