European iPhone partners to be out soon

When we first talked about Apple going with T-Mobile as the wireless service provider for the iPhone in Germany, it was just a rumor. Now, T-Mobile, the wireless arm of Deutsche Telekom has confirmed that they have had talks with Apple about selling the iPhone in Germany.

Discussion of the iPhone’s arrival in Europe intensified following reports last week about a deal between Apple and mobile phone operators in three key European markets: Germany’s T-Mobile, France’s Orange SA and Britain’s O2 (UK).

Not that a deal has been confirmed, but Apple is expected to announce its German wireless partner soon. The holiday season, where a significant amount of wireless phones are purchased, is just around the corner, so we can expect a deal to be announced within the next 1.5 months.
