iPhones may be sold by TelecomBy TOM PULLAR-STRECKER - The Dominion Post | Monday, 24 March 2008
Telecom has hinted that its new $300 million mobile phone network may be the first in New Zealand to support Apple's iPhone.
Head of mobile Martin Butler says whether Telecom would sell the iPhone was a "commercially sensitive issue".
But he said it was a "good inference", given Telecom's partially-completed mobile network uses the same 850MHz GSM/Edge technology that the iPhone supports.
Mr Butler says Telecom has finalised the "footprint" of the new network, which chief executive Paul Reynolds has forecast will launch in November.
