iPhone Has Converted Many to AT&T
Wu also alludes to sources that highlight Vodafone, with its broad geographic coverage, investment in advanced research and development, and high subscriber base, as the most likely carrier partner for the Apple iPhone in the EU. Nonetheless, AT&T’s success will attract other carriers like Orange, T-Mobile, and O2 to more aggressively bid for EU iPhone rights. Indeed, it may be the case that the iPhone would have various carrier partnerships. Wu trusts that in the end Apple will still end up with very favorable terms that are comparable to those granted by AT&T, which disperses monthly service fees and bounties to Apple.
