Apple and T-Mobile announced today that T-Mobile will be the exclusive German carrier for the iPhone when it launches in that country on Nov. 9. The iPhone in Germany will feature Visual Voicemail, EDGE, and the iTunes Wi-Fi Music Store. “We’re thrilled to be partnering with T-Mobile to bring the iPhone to Germany,” said Steve Jobs, Apple’s CEO. “Customer response to iPhone in the US has been incredible, and we can’t wait to introduce T-Mobile customers to the most revolutionary mobile device on the planet.”

“We are convinced that we can get our customers excited about experiencing the mobile internet with the iPhone,” said Hamid Akhavan, CEO, T-Mobile International. “I am proud that Apple and T-Mobile have become partners.” iPhone owners in Germany will also have use of 8,600 T-Mobile HotSpot Wi-Fi access points, and T-Mobile claims that by the end of 2007, it will be the only network operator in Germany to offer EDGE throughout its entire GSM network. The iPhone is scheduled to launch on November 9 and will be sold in Germany through Telekom Shops of Deutsche Telekom and the T-Mobile web shop.
