iPhone 5 may cause Sprint to bet the farm

If there's one measure of a device's popularity and success, it's the willingness of a single company to bet their entire livelihood on future sales. That's quite possibly what's happening right this second behind the scenes at Sprint, where the 3rd largest mobile carrier in America appears to be making a multibillion dollar deal with Apple which will score them an exclusive deal with the iPhone 5.
