iPhone, Apple points to northern Europe
Apple is discussing the terms of the iPhone launch in the Nordic countries. The two most important local operators, TeliaSonera and Telenord, report the negotiations. According to reports from the Dow Jones Newswire agency, at the current state of things there would be talks that would be actively pursued.
The spokespersons of the two telephony companies defined their respective companies as 'very interested in iPhones', adding that they could not go into details. The fact that customers are guiding the managers 'choices is confirmed:' There is an immense intersection – says Anders Krokan, of Telenor – from our customers 'The time for the launch would not be short:' We are still talking to Apple – he said Krokan again – we don't think we can offer the phone later this year
The market in the Nordic countries, Sweden, Finland, Norway and Denmark, does not have the numbers of other countries (including Italy), but the quantity of per capita lines very high. As with other Apple initiatives, nations like Norway and Sweden are likely to join the second launch group, probably together with Italy.
