Executive Tweet Suggests Cellular iPads Coming to T-Mobile

Back in August, T-Mobile CEO John Legere hinted in an interview that T-Mobile would soon be carrying a "whole array of Apple products", with the company expanding their offerings of devices from Apple.

Today, in a tweet linking to a story about Apple's upcoming media event on October 22, T-Mobile CEO John Legere writes:
What has two thumbs and is excited for October 22? #thisguy
The tweet may be the CEO's cryptic way of hinting that next-generation cellular iPads may soon be available from Apple and T-Mobile stores preloaded with T-Mobile SIM cards and optimized for the carrier's LTE bands.

Of course, T-Mobile customers have long been able to put SIM cards from the carrier into iPads as Apple's cellular-equipped tablets are not carrier-locked, but being able to purchase them with a T-Mobile SIM already installed will be an added convenience.

AT&T, Sprint and Verizon already offer cellular-equipped iPads at their retail stores and Apple's various retail outlets.

It's tweets like that that make me wonder why I haven't been able to climb the ladder higher in my company.

To all of the people zinging Legere - have you not seen this man's keynote addresses? This is par for the course, and frankly, refreshing.

The guy has charisma and appears to know what he's doing with his business. Reminds me of some other guy I used to know.

Damn that's a lot of different iPad sku's if they're all carrier locked.


Except the article said this:

Apple's cellular-equipped tablets are not carrier-locked

Maybe you're describing climbing the ladder at a soon-to-be defunct business. Successful businesses do not promote this way.


You're kidding, right?

Climbing the ladder has nothing to do with ability. It's about who you know and what favors your willing to do for them.
