iPhone going nonexclusive in Germany Both O2 and Vodafone have announced their plans to sell the Apple iPhone 4 in Germany, breaking T-Mobile's long time exclusivity on the smartphone in the nation.
T-Mobile has offered the iPhone in Germany since its launch in 2007.

Unfortunately, neither carrier has unveiled plans or pricing.

Most nations now have multiple carriers for the iPhone, with the biggest exception being AT&T in the U.S. That is expected to change soon, as Apple readies a dual-GSM/CDMA iPhone 4 that can be released for T-Mobile USA and Verizon.

T-Mobile is Germany's largest carrier, at 37 million subscribers.

I prefer the iPhone to just be on one carrier because it fosters competition. This creates demand from Verizon and other providers for a phone that can people want just as much. I like choices.
