Achtung! Germany was a part of one of the last remaining European markets with a single iPhone carrier, but not anymore! Deutsche Telekom (DT)-owned carrier T-Mobile’s iPhone exclusivity deal with Apple is expiring very soon. And, to make matters better for those not interested in being under the shackles of one mobile carrier, there have been no talks about extending that deal either.
Those who are catching wind of all the hearsay on the matter have told the Wall Street Journal that the company’s exclusivity deal may end für echte this October–just in time for Oktoberfest! Which means plenty of beer aficionados will be able to enjoy their favorite Pilsner while chatting away on their iPhones on a carrier like Vodafone or O2.
