Will the iPhone5 be a Sprint Exclusive?

settled question on option 'No'.
Computerworld - Sprint is expected to get the iPhone 5 exclusively from Apple to run over its 4G Wimax network, according to a report Monday from BGR.com.
Meanwhile, a separate report -- this one from the Wall Street Journal -- indicated Sprint has agreed to pay Apple $20 billion for 30.5 million iPhones over four years.
The two reports together might make some sense, given Sprint's desperation to get an iPhone to sell for the first time, according to several analysts.
But they don't expect Sprint to do well with an iPhone running on Wimax, partly because Wimax on smartphones is losing steam in the U.S. Sprint is also expected to launch its own LTE 4G initiative next year in recognition of Wimax's waning value.
