Apple plays the Euro telco’s for fools (aahh)

Once again Telebusillis has a great story on what Apple is upto here in Europe with the iPhone. Interesting reading, but the clear loser here is Vodafone.

O2 in the UK, T-Mobile in Germany and Orange in France

If you know your onions in this field you’ll know that Orange is owned by France Telecom (iPhone in France) T-Mobile is owned by Deutsche Telecom (iPhone in Germany) and O2 is owned by Telefonica (iPhone in Spain UK). BT the national incumbent in the UK is missing out here as it doesn’t have a mobile network of it’s own. So BT is another loser in the iPhone game.

So it looks like the national incumbents were able to flex there muscles and win Apples contract to sell and share revenue.
