4G network provider drops iPhone 5 hint

Olaf Swantee, CEO of EE, took to the stage this morning to announce the UK's first 4G network, then dropped an intriguing hint about the iPhone 5

After a slide of the upcoming EE 4G handsets from the likes of Samsung, Nokia, HTC and Huawei, Mr Swantee dropped the "one more thing" line on the audience. 

From there, it was a knowing look and an assurance that other "forthcoming" 4G handsets would be arriving "very soon".

Now, given a certain announcement slated to take place tomorrow across the pond, we can't help but think this is a obvious veiled reference to a 4G iPhone 5 appearing in the UK this year.

If so, that would make EE the sole iPhone 5 4G provider until at least next year when the Ofcom 4G spectrum auction will give the other service providers a shot.

Something that we can see the likes of Vodafone, O2 and 3 getting a little riled over if they're going to be stuck with regular old 3G.

We’ll know for sure once Apple takes to the stage tomorrow, make sure to stick with T3 for all the coverage of the iPhone 5 announcement.
