KPN in talks to carry iPhone in Netherlands

Dutch telecom operator KPN has confirmed that it is in talks with Apple over the rights to sell the iPhone in the Netherlands. “KPN was approached by Apple about selling the iPhone on the Dutch market and, of course, the company is interested,” said a KPN spokesperson. The company declined to comment on how long the two companies have been in talks. Interestingly, KPN CEO Ad Scheepbouwer previously called the iPhone “a pretty useless phone,” only to later admit that the company would be “more than happy” to sell the device.

Ad Scheepbouwer was not wrong in stating that the iphone 1st gen. is useless as a phone. (I will not start the whole 3G discussion again) but from a marketing perspective I still do not understand why the release of the iPhone takes so long.
