Telenor after iPhone 3G?

Norwegian phone carrier Telenor is still contemplating a deal for the iPhone 3G, a company representative claims. In response to an inquiry by a MacNN source, Caroline Ellis, Telenor Mobile's Head of Customer Relations, has explained that while the company has signed no contract for the iPhone, an agreement is currently being "considered," and a decision has yet to be made.

The iPhone is currently expected to launch in Norway solely through TeliaSonera, a Swedish-owned company. The phone is being sold via multiple carriers in a number of countries, however, and Apple has reserved the right to negotiate more deals, though primarily in new areas. The issue could become moot should TeliaSonera be bought by Telenor, an idea proposed in the wake of a similar offer from France Telecom.

    iPhone this, iPhone that

    By the gods, is there any news posted here that is not about the iPhone? Why don't we change the name of this site to least it would make sense then.
