Karstadt stores to offer iPhone in Germany

A spokeswoman for the German department store chain Karstadt has confirmed that the company will sell the iPhone in Germany. “We will offer the iPhone,” said the spokeswoman, noting that it was too soon to say whether the phones would be sold with or without a contract. She added that Karstadt did hope to have the iPhone in stock in time for the holiday shopping season. Previous reports have suggested that T-Mobile will offer service for the iPhone in Germany.

Why omit the relevant bit:

“Apple has not yet given details of how it plans to sell the iPhone in Europe beyond saying it will be available in late 2007. A spokesman for Apple Europe declined to comment on any plans to sell the phones in Karstadt stores.”

Also, exactly ZERO people care WHERE they buy their iPhone here, it’s all about the WHEN and the icky contract bit.

If they are locked to T-Mobile in Germany, does that mean they would work on T-Mobile here?

No, .. I had T-Mobile in germany and even if the logo, name and so on looks the same its a bit different then here in the US.

I never liked T-Mobile in germany because they overcharge. They used to be the big monopol in germany but since the market got open years ago, things has changed. they are still pretty big ,.. and i still don’t like ‘em ... there or here, don’t matter

And I’m just wondering why karstadt,.. Karstadt is nothing else like JC Penny, or SEARS….

I’m really wondering about that….. Why a Storeline like Karstadt .... before I moved to the US I remember that they don’t offer many cellphones there. Most of them where Nokia based….. hmmmm
