T-Mobile to offer iPhone in Germany?

Rheinische Post is reporting that the T-Mobile unit of Deutsche Telekom has completed a deal to be the iPhone’s exclusive carrier in Germany. The report, which is a preview of a larger story set to run tomorrow, claims that the iPhone will sell for around 450 euros — around $612 — and will hit stores Nov. 1. The report did not cite any sources. Previous rumors concerning the iPhone in Europe have stated that Vodafone, as well as T-Mobile, were front runners to land the device. Deutsche Telekom and T-Mobile were not available for comment.

@Manuel: Thanks for the handelsblatt link.
Quite ridiculous how several renowned German news sites picked up the initial story and made it look like a fact, while it was just based on rumours…
