Euro iPhone in October
Apple has narrowed down the iPhone's release in Europe to October, according to an internal e-mail leaked to T3. A member of the Cupertino company's online sales team in Cork, Ireland has reportedly confirmed that the cellular device is planned for an October launch on the continent. If validated, the leak will represent more definitive launch plans than those Apple promised in this month's MacWorld San Francisco keynote speech, where CEO Steve Jobs committed only to a fourth-quarter European release date. Official carriers and pricing were not revealed in the e-mail but are likely to involve continent-wide providers running GSM networks, such as Orange or Vodafone.
