U.S. Cellular to Offer Apple Products
Sometime 'Later This Year'
Buried in a statement
on the company's latest earnings report, wireless carrier U.S. Cellular stated that they too will soon be offering Apple products. "We have a number of strategies in progress to increase loyalty and attract more customers, including our announcement today that we will begin offering Apple products later this year," said the company. U.S. Cellular has had a length and spirited negotiation with Apple, originally turning down a deal because the "terms were unacceptable from a risk and profitability standpoint." Leap Wireless, who is sitting on piles of unsold iPhones
because their customers don't want to buy them unsubsidized, would probably agree.
