TeliaSonera iPhone plans
Swedish telecom company TeliaSonera has yet more plans to expand iPhone sales, according to an announcement. With sales already in progress throughout Scandinavia, Telia says it will soon bring the iPhone 3G to two eastern European countries, Latvia and Lithuania. A release date is in fact scheduled for this Friday, September 26th. Prices are not currently available online.
Telia does not sell under its own name in the two countries, but rather through LMT and Lattelecom in Latvia, and Omnitel and TEO in Lithuania. The deal may ultimately be more crucial to Apple, which has set a goal of expanding iPhone shipments to at least 70 countries by the end of 2008. The latest announcements put the tally at a minimum of 49 countries.
