Vodafone: iPhone to benefit mobile carriers

updated 05:35 pm EST, Fri March 2, 2007

Vodafone chief on iPhone

German-based Vodafone chief Friedrich Joussen expressed his approval of Apple's iPhone, saying that the device will have a positive effect on his company's business because it will set new trends for the downloadable mobile music market. Those new trends, Joussen said, will bring greater revenues for mobile carriers, according to iPhone World. The executive believes that Vodafone itself will benefit from its investment in UMTS-enabled network development, and several Vodafone executives have publicly expressed interest in becoming the exclusive iPhone distributor in Europe.

    Vodafone...

    Just to put things in context - Vodafone will be Apple's exclusive carrier across Europe, for the same reasons AT&T is it for the USA.

    that's REALLY good to know actually, thanks zink. I have a SIM card with Vodafone for use in Italy. So, if ever iPhone's can be purchased unlocked, I can use my iPhone both in the US and over in Europe by just swapping out the SIM cards.
