Rumor: O2 To Get The iPhone In The UK
It has been rumored that O2 beat out other wireless carriers such as T-Mobile and Vodafone to carry the iPhone. If this is true as The Finacial Times claims it is then Apple will supposedely do a different carrier for each country in Europe for the iPhone’s release late this year.
As of late we’ve heard confirmations and denials as to which carrier would get Apple’s iPhone and many were uncertain of it’s fate in Europe due to the lack of 3G in the device as 2G networks such as EDGE are very rare.
O2 has also beaten a strong competitor, Vodafone to the punch if this rumor can be confirmed. But we’ll know very soon if it is as the contract will be signed quickly which will be followed up by an announcement.
But Apple is still negotiations with other wireless carriers across Europe and for when the iPhone’s exclusivity ends with other carriers such as O2.
This is the best news I’ve had on iPhone in some time. O2 are my favourite carrier.
Well, Tesco are, but that’s just a virtual network on O2’s systems.
