Looks like the iPhone will be coming to Germany, and T-Mobile is going to be the only one to carry it. Unfortunately, although the news comes from a local German paper, we don’t currently have confirmation of this story. The article goes on to explain that the iPhone will be sold for 450 euros, which comes to about $612. We’re not sure if that is for the 4GB or 8GB model, or if both versions will even be offered.
In Germany, T-Mobile is the mobile phone division of Deutsche Telekom. Neither T-Mobile or Deutsche Telekom have commented on the news.
