    "O2 refused to confirm that it has won the right to sell Apple's music-oriented handset exclusively in the UK, despite evidence appearing in source code on Carphone Warehouse's website," Fildes reports. "Peter Erskine, chief executive of O2, said: 'We're excited about this product and we certainly hope to be marketing it later in the year when it launches.'"

    Rumour has it that the iPhone will be officially available in France, Germany and the UK between Sept. and Nov. this year.
    The german iPhone carrier is rumoured to be T-Mobile because they also have the best EDGE coverage in Germany. Don't know about other countries but I suppose that Apple NEEDS Edge for data communication, so the carriers with the best EDGE coverage in France and the UK should get the first deal offers from Apple. Just a wild guess of course but it would make sense.

    Vodafone just started with EDGE in Germany, only a few larger cities are covered, EDGE is mainly a substitute for UMTS/HSDPA in regions outside the cities where UMTS/HSDPA isn't available. T-Mobile has a wide EDGE coverage already in Germany. I doubt that Vodafone would start to offer EDGE everywhere in Germany, so they can just make the deal with Apple.
