iPhones are invading Germany!
If you live in Germany, you will soon be able to get the new iPhone!

Deutsche Telekom's mobile phone division, T-Mobile just won a significant contract in Germany.  The contract, announced September 19, 2007 will give T-Mobile exclusive rights to sell Apple's popular iPhone in Germany.

The 8 GB phone will debut in Germany on November 9, 2007 and will sell for 399 euros ($558).

The move follows English phone giant O2's winning bid to sell the phone in the United Kingdom, as reported at DailyTech.

Hamid Akhavan, CEO, T-Mobile International had this to say on the victory: “I am proud that Apple and T-Mobile have become partners. The best mobile device currently on the market will soon be operating on the best network in the country.”

The iPhone is certainly a hot seller.  In only 74 days it sold one million units in the United States.

T-Mobile already had some non-official iPhone business, through unlocked iPhones operating on T-Mobile networks in the U.S.  This marks the first time T-Mobile will be officially licensed to work with and distribute the compatible iPhone.

Deutsche Telekom is one of central Europe's largest phone providers with 112 million customers.  German users will have full access to Apple's iTunes story and the iPhone's visual voicemail service.

Since I am from Germany, this is mildly interesting for me. Not that I want or need an iPhone. What really irks me is how expensive this deal was for T-com....but then, it will probably show up on my T-com bill next month. In some form or another, it certainly will. Nice.

And 400€?? No thanks, I'll pass on that one.
