The iPhone is coming to Spain under exclusive arrangement with Telefonica Movistar, the network confirmed privately this month.

Apple has been widely-expected to ink a distribution deal with a Spanish mobile phone network to bring the iPhone to the country, and it appears Movistar has won the toss.

The company’s José Santos Esteras confirmed the news speaking at the Professional Communications Congress, PROCOM, earlier this month. He revealed the network to have secured an exclusive distribution deal for the iPhone in Spain, though competing firms this is only a limited contract, offering exclusivity for just a few months.

We’ve been predicting this network would snag the distribution contract for a few months now, but it’s nice to confirm it.
