Vodafone signs iPhone deal, Australia finally included
Generally, I don’t post news that’s probably been repeated thousands of times around the interwebs here at TB Tech – however, this evening has proved too important.
Our friends at Engadget have just broken the news that Vodafone (my chosen carrier) has indeed signed a massive contract with Apple, and it will soon be selling the iPhone — neither company has stated whether it will be the original iPhone, or a revamped model – in Australia, the Czech Republic, Egypt, Greece, Italy, India, Portugal, New Zealand, South Africa and Turkey.
This is all we know, and all Vodafone’s telling.
Will all those individuals who bought their iPhone overseas early, and brought it out to Australia for use (through warranty-voiding hacks, of course) be peeved at this news? Probably not. They got the head start on all this, after all.
As soon as we can get our hands on a legal iPhone here in Australia, we’ll have a comprehensive review up. However, the actual sale of these devices may still be months away. However, knowledge of the deal has given Apple and smartphone fans in general a far brighter outlook for the iPhone down under!
If anything more comes out of this news — like which model(s) they’re referring to — we’ll have it all.
