3G iPhone coming soon to T-Mobile Austria?

T-Mobile has said it will soon be offering the 3G iPhone, according to Austrian newspaper Der Standard. T-Mobile reportedly made the announcement at a press conference in Vienna, saying that the phone would soon be available and adding that Austria will be a test market for the new handset, making it one of the first countries to receive the new phone. Pricing for the 3G iPhone is said to be more “flexible” than current offerings. Although no other reports of the press conference have yet been discovered online, fscklog.com did receive a reply on the matter from T-Mobile Austria, which said (translated): “Yes, we plan to bring the iPhone with UMTS-support to market, but can’t and are not allowed to say when yet.” Apple launched the iPhone in Austria in March.

...how many times can i read ‘austria’ and still be thinking kangaroos?  Apparently four, and probably even more, had I not been confused by you inserting “(translated)” in there, and me having to think: “huh?  why’d they have to translate an aussie’s speech?”

“g’day, mate, let’s throw another shrimp on the barbie!”
“let’s not.”
