Sprint iPhone 5 rumors have been gurgling around the Web for a while now, but today comes the next best thing to an actual launch party – a report from Bloomberg News, sourced to anonymous insiders, confirming the autumn arrival of a Sprint-powered Apple handset.

Interestingly, according to Bloomberg, the Sprint iPhone will be available with an unlimited data plan, which would help set the device apart from rival AT&T and Verizon-powered devices.

"It’s a competitive disadvantage if your two larger competitors have the iPhone and you don’t.

And the gap would conceivably close that much faster if Sprint offers what Verizon and AT&T currently do not: The ability to slurp down an unlimited amount of multimedia content, for a single, flat fee.
