iPhone appears on Amazon in Europe | Macitynet.it
iPhone also arrives in Europe, or … almost. To present a page where the phone is exposed, surprisingly, Amazon in its three stores active in France, Germany and the United Kingdom. The links simply present the phones in the 4 and 8 GB version without any information on the release date or the price (customers are invited to request information on when the phone will be released), even if in the afternoon it seems that a previous one version of the websites announced a launch for December 1st at a price of 649 euros (including VAT).
Beyond the surprise of selling the phone also appears from the site of a retailer of the old continent before Apple announced the availability of the same, the most curious aspect that is Amazon to offer the mobile phone. In the US, the site for online sales did not have phones from Apple which only trades them through its website, Apple Stores and At & T stores, the exclusive operator for network connectivity.
There are many questions that can be asked about this choice. The most intriguing regards the meaning of an agreement with a retailer that sells cell phones without particular telephony brands. Maybe Apple, as some Internet sites and analysts have already suggested, is thinking of selling the phone in Europe without an agreement with a specific access provider?
For an answer you will have to wait a few weeks or maybe even a few months, when Apple decides to resolve all the doubts, which are really many, about the European version of the iPhone. For now, this curious and in some ways unsettling appearance of the iPhone on the Amazon website only contributes to increasing curiosity and complicating the situation.
