It’s official: Vodafone to offer Apple iPhone in ten markets worldwide
During November of last year, we reported that Vodafone might be one of the first carriers to offer the 3G version of Apple’s iPhone to their customers across the world by this year’s spring. Today, we are glad to say that we haven’t been let down by our sources, and official word from Vodafone confirms that they will indeed start selling Apple’s iPhone later this year.
In an announcement made by Vodafone, it is said that they have signed an agreement with Apple to sell the iPhone in up to ten markets around the world.
It isn’t made clear whether the Vodafone’s version of the Apple iPhone will have support for 3G/UMTS networks, but at least they identified the ten markets that they are going to sell this much-awaited device in later this year. These are Australia, the Czech Republic, Egypt, Greece, Italy, India, Portugal, New Zealand, South Africa and Turkey.
So yes, if you’re located in any of the ten places that I just enumerated, it is time to rejoice. 3G iPhone or not, at least you’re getting it, which is a step in the right direction.
