Apple and T-Mobile said Wednesday that the carrier will begin selling the iPhone in Germany on November 9, the same day UK consumers first see the device.
T-Mobile is Germany's largest provider with 30.7 million customers. It is also the only carrier in the country that will have deployed EDGE data across its entire network by the end of 2007, which is central to the data capabilities of the iPhone.
German consumers will be able to purchase the device at Telekom Shops of Deustche Telekom or through the online store. The price is 399 euros including VAT, and requires a two-year contract with the company.
"I am proud that Apple and T-Mobile have become partners," T-Mobile International CEO Hamid Akhavan said in a statement. "The best mobile device currently on the market will soon be operating on the best network in the country."
