Russia’s third largest mobile phone company, MegaFon, announced its plans to sell the Apple iPhone later this year. Other than making an official announcement about their future venture in selling the iPhone, MegaFon gave no further details.
Although the iPhone is already available through the gray market in Russia, there is a good chance more people will buy into it if it ever gets released officially. Plus, the new iPhone is a bit better than the first-generation model currently being sold in Russia, adding a few features such as 3G network support and a built-in GPS.
Along with China Mobile, Apple is still in talks with other operators in Russia to possibly market the Apple iPhone.
