iPhone Russia coming soon

Bloomberg is reporting that the iPhone may be hitting Russia sooner than expected.  According to their Russian telecoms correspondant, Maria Kolesnikova:

OAO VimpelCom, Russia’s second-largest mobile-phone company, and OAO MegaFon, the third-biggest, may sign a deal with Apple Inc. to start selling iPhones in the country this week.

As part of the agreement, Apple wants each operator to buy 1 million to 1.5 million iPhones, the newspaper said, citing unidentified people at the two companies.
