KPN on Dutch iPhone
Royal KPN is in negotiations with Apple about carrying the iPhone in the Netherlands, according to Thomson Financial. The news agency says that it has word of talks thanks to a KPN spokesman, who in turn explains that Apple actively approached the Dutch carrier, and met with a warm reception. No one at KPN has agreed to speak on the worth of a deal, however, or on matters like the progress of talks and how long they have been active.
The Netherlands is notable as one of the few major European countries without a confirmed iPhone deal; aside from existing deals in Austria, England, France, Ireland and Germany, Apple has arranged contracts with the likes of Vodafone and Orange that will see the phone ship in regions such as Belgium, Poland, Italy and Greece.
