Dutch iPhone to be sold through Apple resellers?

Dutch iPhone via resellers

The iPhone 3G will be available through Apple resellers in the Netherlands, writes MacWereld. The site says that several such retailers have claimed deals with T-Mobile, which will otherwise be the only legal vendor of the iPhone in the country. Apple's official stores are located solely in Canada, Italy, Japan, the US and the UK, and the only authorized third-party iPhone distributor is the UK's Carphone Warehouse.

Resellers alleged to be participating in the Netherlands include A-Mac, Ivizi and MacMe, who will not only have to sell iPhones with a T-Mobile subscription, but display them in a manner dictated by the phone carrier. The resellers say they were briefly advertising the iPhone through their websites before T-Mobile asked them to pull messages.

The device may also be sold through a number of other stores that specialize in cellphones, but none have been named and unlike the resellers, there is no indication of approval by Apple Netherlands.
