Apple Secures Europe iPhone Revenue Deals

, Aug 22, 2007

Unbelievable (emphasis mine):

Apple has succeeded in committing European mobile phone operators that want exclusively to sell its new iPhone to share parts of their revenues with the technology group.

The contract, which was signed by three European mobile operators in recent days, requires that the operators hand over to Apple 10 per cent of the revenues made from calls and data transfers by customers over iPhones. The contract was signed by T-Mobile of Germany, Orange of France and O2 in the UK.
