Apple Job Posting Hints at Possible Sprint iPhone
Posted on May 17, 2011 by eli courey
A job listing posted by Apple for a “Carrier Engineer” in Kansas City, Missouri area has many people speculating that it is specifically related to bringing the iPhone to Sprint.
Member of the Carrier Engineering team that supports taking products through technical approval at the carriers. A Carrier Engineer team is 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.
With the recent slowness of Apple news, “analysts” are grabbing for whatever they can find and trying to turn it into something. This job listing was actually posted on April 2nd, so it’s not really that new. I wouldn’t be surprised if the iPhone came to Sprint sometime this year, but I don’t think this rumor guarantees it in any way.
