Apple has finally secured a distribution deal for iPhone in the Nordic nation states, with Sweden’s largest mobile firm, TeliaSonera AB, moving to ship the device in seven countries there, starting “later this year”.
Sweden, Norway, Denmark, Finland, Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia will all be served by TeliaSonera AB, (pictured, former CEO Anders Igel).
Good news for Holland today, as local mobile network Royal KPN NV has now confirmed it is in talks with Apple to sell the iPhone in the Netherlands.
A statement emanating from Reuters explains the company was approached by Apple about selling iPhone on the Dutch market, “of course, the company is interested,” a spokesman said.
The only remaining major territories on a global basis in which Apple hasn’t yet made a distribution deal include Russia, China, and parts of Asia and Africa. Most larger countries now appear to have some form of distribution deal in place. Read our ‘who’s-who in iPhone distro deals so far?’ for more information.
