O2 and Vodafone to sell the iPhone 4 in Germany

3 September, 2010 | Comments (21) | Post your comment

T-Mobile is losing its exclusivity for iPhone in Germany. As a result two more operators, O2 and Vodafone, will start selling Apple's phone as soon as the negotiations are finalized.

While all carriers are selling older iPhones models, the latest iPhone 4 is exclusive to T-Mobile DE. Currently, its price starts from 1 euro when purchased together with a 2-year contract.

T-Mobile Germany has already sold good 1.9 million iPhones across the country despite the delayed iPhone 4 shipments (some customers had to wait 9 weeks for the coveted device).

The latest rumor is T-Mobile is about to lose its exclusivity for Apple's toy in Germany in October, which will allow the other two companies to get in on the action. There is no word from either of the companies yet but according to the WSJ the negotiations are in an advanced stage.

It's not like we haven't seen this scenario: last year the same thing happened to O2 UK who lost its iPhone exclusivity in the UK weeks just before the holiday season and Vodafone and Orange were allowed to join the game.

Honestly I would. I couldn't imagine owning a phone without file transfer over bluetooth option. Me and my coworkers use it often when transferring photos to the workstation. It's a basic feature and you shouldn't need an app for that, no preinstall...
