T-Mobile has been confirmed as Apple's iPhone partner in Germany, with the handset launching there on the same day as it does in the UK - November 9.
Apple announced this morning that the iPhone will cost €399 (£280) including sales tax with a two-year service contract. In the US, the same phone now sells for $399, after launching at $599. In the UK it will cost £269 ($538) in the UK with an 18-month contract.
The deal will come as some consolation to T-Mobile, a subsidiary of Deutsche Telekom AG, which saw rival AT&T win the right to distribute the iPhone in the US.
All eyes are now on France, where analysts expect Orange, the mobile phone and Internet access division of France Télécom SA, to announce that it has won the exclusive right to distribute the phone there. Orange representatives were not immediately available to comment.
