iPhone to Leapfrog Verizon, Launch at Cricket Wireless

The Rotten Onion - America's Fakest News Source4/13/2010 Cupertino, California – In a move that has the global technology sector chirping, Apple Inc. (AAPL) CEO Steve Jobs confirmed that the “carrier” (disease?) that will end AT&T’s stranglehold on the iPhone will not be Verizon or Sprint, but will instead be Cricket Communications, Inc., a leading provider of unlimited wireless services and subsidiary of Leap Wireless International Inc. (LEAP 17.76, +0.08, +0.45Cricket iPhone%).

The move comes on the heels of Cricket’s March 23rd launch of new nationwide coverage in all 50 states as part of their enhanced, value-driven, simplified service plans.

A launch date has not yet been made public.  Reportedly, the Cricket iPhone will run OS 4, will only be available in green, and will have longer antennae than other iPhones.

Future plans may also include a green-only Cricket-branded version of the iPad called – what else? – The LilyPad.
