T-Mobile iPhone leak
The German division of T-Mobile has possibly leaked its status as a European carrier for the iPhone. Local newspaper Focus has captured a screenshot (right, below) of the company's online store, where the iPhone is said to have briefly appeared as its own category. Along with this went the notice of an "indexation test," supporting the notion that T-Mobile is engaged in some kind of behind-the-scenes preparation that was exposed prematurely.
T-Mobile has been tipped as one of the leading contenders for an iPhone contract, although the company denies this, and it would have to take its place alongside at least one other carrier. T-Mobile's reach does cover regions outside of Germany, such as Poland and the UK, but it does not extend to the likes of France, Italy or Spain.
