T-Mobile exec tells employees they aren't getting the iPhone 5 this year

T-Mobile Chief Marketing Officer Cole Brodman held a townhall meeting today where he told employees that the company would unfortunately not be included among the carriers getting the iPhone 5 when it launches later this year.

We are not going to get the iPhone 5 this year.

TiPb previously heard that the T-Mobile iPhone 5 launch was already being prepped, so either that information was inaccurate, something has changed, or iPhone 5 isn't the iPhone T-Mobile is getting (budget iPhone?, iPhone 4S? Who can keep track at this point?)

Could T-Mobile be the only major US carrier without an iPhone in its stocking this holiday season, or could they still have an iPhone party before the end of 2011?
