by on05 July 2007


Only interested in Britain, France and Germany

Apple's much hyped iPhone will only be Britain, France and Germany this year.

According to the Financial Times, the smaller nations in Europe and Asia will not see the iPhone until 2008.

O2, the British unit of Spanish telecommunications group Telefonica, is set to be the first European mobile phone operator to reach a deal with Apple, the FT says.

T-Mobile, the mobile arm of German telecommunications giant Deutsche Telekom will sell the iPhone in Germany while Orange is likely to win France.
The FT was unable to find anyone that could confirm its story.  O2 says it is still talking to Apple and Apple always refuses to comment.
