T-Mobile and Apple have entered an agreement and will be launching products beginning next year. The announcement was posted (nearly as an afterthought, oddly enough) as part of a press release in which Deutsche Telekom spelled out its financial plans through 2015, while COO Rene Obermann also made the announcement in an investors conference. While the two companies have not explicitly given specifics on which Apple devices we can expect to see in a retail store near you, we wouldn't be surprised to see new products from Cupertino hitting the shelves around the same time as the fourth-largest US carrier's LTE launch in 2013.

T-Mobile has made no secret of the fact that it has long been interested in carrying Apple products, as several executives have made mention of it. The company already boasts over a million unlocked iPhones in use on its network, which is currently undergoing an expansive 3G refarming effort on iPhone-friendly (amongst other quad-band phones, of course) 1900MHz frequencies. We've reached out to T-Mobile and Apple for comment and will update this post as we hear more. For now, check out the press release in all its glory below.
