Post: European iPhone contract leaked?

updated 09:20 am EDT, Mon August 27, 2007

European iPhone contracts

The subject of speculation for months, information has purportedly been leaked regarding Apple's European contracts for the iPhone. As suggested, the phone should be carried by T-Mobile in Germany, Orange in France, and O2 in the United Kingdom; sources for the New York Post add, however, that T-Mobile has signed a deal in which Apple will receive 10 percent of data and voice charge revenues. Similar arrangements are said to be "close" to completion with O2 and Orange.

In the United States, Apple is believed to be involved in a substantial revenue-sharing agreement with AT&T, receiving as much as $200 per iPhone with an extra $9 per month for the duration of a customer contract. Both this and the European deals are attributed to the intense media hype for the iPhone, which has in turn generated public curiosity. Most cellular networks do not share income with handset makers. Apple has yet to formally announce any contract details, either foreign or domestic.
