The iPhone Comes Flying Out of the Gate at T-Mobile

The following video is from Wednesday's installment of The Motley Fool's Weekly Tech Review, in which analysts Eric Bleeker and Jason Moser look at the biggest stories driving the tech sector this week.

Kantar Media recently released data indicating that during three months ending in May, Apple's (NASDAQ: AAPL  ) iPhone accounted for 31% of smartphone sales on T-Mobile (NYSE: TMUS  ) in spite of its being available for only half of those three months. And the iPhone isn't even subsidized on T-Mobile -- the "un-carrier" has trumpeted its switch to installment payments. What should investors think about the iPhone's surprisingly strong start on T-Mobile?

It's incredible to think just how much of our digital and technological lives are almost entirely shaped and molded by just a handful of companies. Find out "Who Will Win the War Between the 5 Biggest Tech Stocks" in The Motley Fool's latest free report, which details the knock-down, drag-out battle being waged among the five kings of tech.

    AT&T, Verizon, Sprint and Cricket all these telecom companies are some of the most ethical and honest companies. These companies are successful, because corrupt directors (John) can’t survive in these organizations.

    On the other hand any company which treat their hard working sincere employees in bad way and give their jobs to corrupt director’s (John) buddies will sooner or later finish, they will never be successful business.

    When a corrupt director (John) can decide to give hard working employees job to his buddy and all senior leadership close their eyes to this injustice, it speaks a lot about organization. And if organization fails to protect their own sincere hard working employees from corrupt directors (John), how can they do anything good for their customers.

    I swear that I am getting tired of this "yes Apple is doing good right now but in two years when the phones still work great, people will not be so willing to upgrade" junk. While its true that phones and computers are lasting longer,

    Only Apple is trying to sell great products and not junk that fails in two years so you need to buy another one. Apples focus is not to make tons of cash first, it to make great products... ones that last.

    Totally different game.
