European carriers start pre-order tickets for new iPhone

updated 12:28 pm EDT, Tue August 14, 2012

Deutsche Telekom first entry into market

European carriers are already beginning to offer pre-order reservations for the next-generation iPhone, reports say. The first of these appears to be Deutsche Telekom, which is now issuing tickets to interested customers through its distribution partners. Although they're only available on a first-come first-served basis, getting a ticket is said to ensure express delivery as soon as phones are available.

If events follow the same pattern as last year, DT is expected to be followed by other European carriers such as Vodafone. The real significance of the reservations, however, may be firm evidence that Apple is planning to launch a new iPhone in the near future. Currently Apple is expected to announce the device on September 12th, and ship it a short time later. Germany should be one of the initial launch regions, as it has been for several years.
