Sprint to get iPhone 5 this October?

The Wall Street Journal is reporting that Sprint Nextel will get iPhone 5 mid-October, the same time TiPb reported AT&T and Verizon would be getting Apple's next generation handset.

Landing the iPhone is a big win for Sprint, whose results have suffered without being able to sell the iconic device. This February, Verizon Wireless began selling the iPhone 4, while AT&T has relied on versions of the Apple device to drive sales since 2007.

In all likelihood, this will be the same CDMA/GSM dual-mode world phone destind for Verizon's network. While the WSJ seems shocked and surprised at iPhone 5 coming in October, TiPb readers have known for a while now that Apple has been considering October 7, possibly October 14 as launch dates.

However, with Yukari Iwatani Kane and her excellent track-record contributing to their article, it's excellent confirmation and Sprint customers should have a lot to look forward to this fall.

Anyone going to line up for Sprint this time instead of AT&T or Verizon?
