Orange, other telcos discuss more iPhone expansion

updated 09:40 am EDT, Wed May 7, 2008

iPhone in Spain, Poland?

Several more deals are in the works for expanding iPhone distribution, says Thomson Financial News. The group first writes that Orange, owned by France Telecom, is seeking to sell the iPhone outside of its home territory, where the device has been available since November. Orange CFO Gervais Pellissier says his company is currently in negotiations with Apple on the matter, and is looking to bring the iPhone to countries such as Spain and Poland, "among others." The carrier also has operations in regions such as Romania, Slovakia, Israel and the UK.

Separately, meanwhile, Portugal's Sonaecom and Portugal Telecom are said to have approached Apple about distribution in their home country. Thomson cites local newspaper Diario de Noticias, which in turn claims that the companies are angling for a deal similar to that for Italy, where both Vodafone and Telecom Italia will be allowed to sell the iPhone. Vodafone has already scored a contract for Portugal, but there is said to be no exclusivity clause, unlike the earliest iPhone agreements.
