Apple: Will Sprint Get the iPhone?

Here’s an interesting question: could Apple (AAPL) add Sprint (S) as the second U.S. carrier for the iPhone?

There’s not much to go on here, but a blog called The Tech Update is reporting–this is pretty sketchy–that an anonymous employee of a Best Buy (BBY) store in Pennsylvania claims a Sprint iPhone is coming, and that they expect store displays for a Sprint iPhone in the next week or so.

I have no idea if this is true, but you could imagine why they might want to do this; via its access to the Clearwire (CLWR) WiMax network, the carrier has the first functioning 4G mobile network, with a considerable lead over the LTE-based networks coming from AT&T (T) and Verizon (VZ).
