Next-gen iPhone deals still in negotiations

Next-gen iPhone talks

Apple is continuing to negotiate contracts for the next-generation iPhone, even as an anticipated announcement at WWDC approaches, information from New Zealand reveals. Using its Twitter feed, Telecom New Zealand has stated that it is not only in negotiations with Apple, but "very focused on the 3rd gen iPhone." The accuracy of the tweet has been reinforced by the carrier's retail chief, Alan Gourdie, who tells New Zealand's National Business Review that TNZ is in "deep discussions" with Apple.

The iPhone is already available in some 80 countries, and Apple has declared interest in expanding to more. Beyond this company is thought to be reaching for more customers by expanding the number of carriers in each region; the iPhone is already available in New Zealand, for example, but only from Vodafone. The device could also become available through multiple US carriers in the future, but not until 2010 at the earliest.

    I sure hope these

    deals are gonna do something to move Apple's share price up. When the third quarter numbers come out, Apple is going to be kicked in the gut due to low sales all around. For every one good news, there's two bad news to follow.
