Movistar bringing iPhone to Spain

updated 07:05 am EDT, Mon June 2, 2008

iPhone for Spain

Movistar today said that it will carry the iPhone for Spain. The company follows in the pattern of earlier announcements and doesn't say when the device will be available or which model; customers can sign up for notifications as to when launch information will be available, according to a company posting. The official announcement follows a confirmation of plans from a Movistar executive last month that also suggested the carrier would have a short run of exclusivity before rivals can carry the device.


Movistar's parent company, Telefonica, has said it would make a multinational announcement for a number of its related carriers but has yet to do so. Telefonica currently owns the British division of O2, which is already an officially sanctioned iPhone carrier, and also operates O2 in the Czech Republic and Slovakia. The Movistar name is also held in Colombia, Ecuador, and Venezuela.

Most anticipate further details to appear on or shortly after the start of Apple's Worldwide Developer Conference, when a 3G-capable iPhone is likely to be announced.
