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.
