iPhone's European carriers confirmed?
While all the “little blogs” play the “guess who the carrier is” game, Financial Times just stepped forward and announced that Apple recently closed the deal with three European carriers that will have exclusive rights to the iPhone.
The contract, which was signed by three European mobile operators in recent days, requires that the operators hand over to Apple 10 per cent of the revenues made from calls and data transfers by customers over iPhones.
The contract was signed by T-Mobile of Germany, Orange of France and O2 in the UK, people familiar with the situation told FT Deutschland, the Financial Times’s sister paper.
The operators are set officially to announce the partnerships at the IFA trade fair in Berlin at the end of August.
